We are so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Thanksgiving with everyone and what an incredible hostess she was. Also the joy she had driving my Mom around in her red Firebird. She will be dearly missed but moreover, dearly remembered.

So sorry Cheryl. Only met your mom a few times at Dr. Wilson's office and she was a hoot! I am sure you will have memories of many happy times with her. She must have been a great mom, because look at the girls she raised! Love to you all.

I am so sorry for your loss. Aunt Gene was a wonderful person, always teased me about being just like my dad!

I am so sorry to learn about the passing of your mother. Your mom and dad were good friends of my parents, Ken and Alma Woodruff. I remember your mother always was gracious and had a wonderful smile. Prayers for your family during this time. Connie Isler
