  1. I have many fond memories of Mrs.Liebenauer in LPN school back in 1989,i still remember many of the skills she taught me,may she rest in peace.Sincerely Vicki Nelson

  2. Kara and family, I am so sorry for your loss! I remember Kara when we were in Campus School together and I would come over and stay the night at your home from time to time! You mom was always so sweet! I can remember her trying to get me to eat dinner when I was there but I was always too shy! I also remember the time we got in trouble after we fell in the muddy water at Rice Creek down the road from your house! I am betting we would not have gotten in trouble if we hadn’t gotten mud and water all over the floor!
    May your mom have peace in heaven where she will be free of the Alzheimer’s!
