We are so sorry to hear this! Your Mom always had a smile and kind words for us and a laugh when we reminisced about you all! I remember her teaching Sunday School with my Mom. Many years of fond memories of a special lady who loved her Heavenly Father and her family! She will be missed. Fondly...Willie and Jill Grove

I was saddened to hear about Karen's passing. After Don passed away I didn't see much of my step-sister as life's journeys can put miles between people, but she will be missed. I am sorry that I cannot come to the funeral. I wish fond memories for all of you. You are in my prayers.

Darla, Cyndy, Kim and Doug, I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. My heart goes out to all of you. Your mom was very special to our family. She will always be in our hearts. She made my son a blanket when he was born and told me that my mom told her to make it for me. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Love Rhonda Schlabach & Family
