Memories Timeline


  1. David, Stefanie and I share in your loss of your Mother and are thinking of you and your family. I read with great interest about your Mom's ministry to others through her mebership of St. Paul Catholic Church, the Ladies Altar Society and as a Eucharistic Minister for the church and the homebound. As the Apostle Paul wrote, "To live is Christ and to die is gain". While her ministry on Earth has come to a close, we will be reunited with her and Christ someday soon. We will minister to those that do not know Christ with all expectation that anyone who believes can experience God's grace. Syd

  2. David, Shannon, Allie, Aaron, and Austin, We are thinking of you and know you will miss your mother and grandmother so very much. You are in our prayers, and we love you all very much. Peggy and Doug Lester

  3. Janet, Sorry I was unable to attend the services for your Mom. She was such a special lady. Sending my love and prayers to you and all of your family. Vicki

  4. Aunt Brenda, Todd, Laiken, and Brynn,
    I am so sorry to hear of Donnette's passing. I haven't seen Donnette in a very long time, but I know that she is now with Uncle Mike and all of our family that has gone onto Heaven before us. Maw Maw Lula was waiting to hug her favorite Puloot, as she use to call Donnette. Know that you all in our hearts and thoughts during this very difficult time. May God keep you all comforted and heal your hearts. God Bless the family. Love Always, Troy, Teresa and family.
