I have many wonderful memories growing up & spending time with my Grandpa Ewald Milkert & Joyce. I always loved going to their house when I was little & playing games with them. I loved watching them hit the dance floor when they would join us at the Mascoutah Homecoming.
My prayers and thoughts are with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
