Condolence & Memory Journal

We were so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was a special lady and always remembered our family with cards and wonderful notes. It has been hard to keep up with her life since we moved away, but she sent cards with very loving notes to our family. Love, Ron and Jean Neste

Always enjoyed helping her at the Mayville Public Library on Friday mornings. Even had the pleasure of delivering dvds to her apt. when she wasn't up to getting out.

Scott, Mary, Mike, Dan, Joe, Steve and families,
Such sad news to hear that your Mom, Grandmother and Great Grandmother has passed away. I feel so bad that I hadn't stopped to see her in her "hotel" and haven't been very faithful in keeping in touch with her, as I know she loved getting mail. She was quite the lady and was sooo proud (rightfully so) of her family. I will miss her Christmas cards and calls. Hugs to you all during this difficult time.
