Love you Evelyn… you were a wonderful mother, grand mother and friend. Thanks for raising my best friend Jane!
I’m so sorry for your loss – she was so much a part of our lives and we spent so many good times with your family. I think your Dad was the first one to give Jen a taste of beer by dipping her pacifier in his beer and she loved it!!! My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

My sincerest sympathies for your loss. I looked forward to her visits as she was always smiling and a ray of sunshine. I am truly thankful for the privilege of knowing her.
Your family has our deepest condolences at this very difficult time. Your mother was a great lady and a friend for over 50 years who will be livingly remembered. Bless her heart.
I knew your folks from the Vegetable Growers Assn. My parents (Lucy & Cy Weissert) were also farmers. Like many of the comments I read, your mom always had a smile. It must have been a hard decision to have a private funeral I think your mom is proud of you for doing what you can to keep many people safe. Just wanted to send prayers and “hugs” your way.
Anne, Jane and your families,
Your mom was very instrumental on the Patient Advisory Committee. She always challenged us to elevate the quality of services for the community. My sister left us the same day as your mom so I know the challenges this current situation brings in honoring their lives and wishes. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Anne and Jane, I’m so sorry for your loss. It’s so hard to lose a parent. I know you have wonderful memories to help you through this sad time. You and your families are in my thoughts and prayers..
Jane & Anne, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was always such a lovely and positive person.
