One of the sweetest lady's I have ever met. I will always remember her for her kindness and sugar cookies! =) I will be forever grateful for the memories my children had with her. They loved going to grandma Burgess's for Thanksgiving. She will be missed by many but never forgotten.

So sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was a great lady with a great family. I used to enjoy seeing her when she came shopping at Buehlers. She used to give me a hard time when I bagged her groceries or loaded them for her. Loved her sense of humor, which I believe she has passed on to her family members. Now she's at rest with her Lord in Heaven. Know that our prayers and sympathy are with all of you in the days ahead. She will be missed, but never forgotten. God Bless.
