She also enjoyed quilting, gardening, socializing, especially talking on the telephone. She was especially fond of spending time with her family; her children and grandchildren.

I am sorry to hear of your mothers passing I was very grateful that when I would come home for visits I would sometimes get to visit with her. I would love to stay in touch with all you children it's been to long . I personally apologize for not being there as I am not able to come because of work but my heart is truly there in spirit . I remember coming to your farm home and we would all have a family Christmas and aunt Elsie. Would play her accordion and uncle Donnie would play his steel guitar and we all would sing christmas songs it was so much fun. Your dad and my dad and all the brothers would sit and visit while all the woman would cook I really miss all this. All my love your cousin Jeanine

So sorry for your loss, it's hard to lose our parents. I'm sure she is in a better place now, quilting and talking on the phone, and we will see her again. My thoughts and prayers go out to your families.

Dear sweet Joann- My heart is heavy with sadness for you and your family. It is so difficult to say goodbye to our Moms, they are certainly the "glue".Please know that we are holding you in our thoughts and prayers during and after this sad time.
