  1. Fond memories of you mom and dad who were friends through alliance church with my parents. Plus her visits to Hannibal Transfer Great Lady Thoughts are with you Brent from the transfer now retired.

  2. What a fun-loving out-going lady! She always put others before herself. We will miss you mom and we will always hold you dear to our hearts and hold tight to all of our fond memories at camp too. Especially our late night Moon-lit boat ride that Bruce took us on! You are forever in our thoughts and memories, Forever!
