Ron and Lillie, I am so sorry to hear this, your Mom was wonderful to me when I first came to Wisconsin and was a friend for life. Tho I didn't see her often after we moved I have always have a special place in my heart for my first true "bud" after coming to Wisconsin. Peace to you both, don't know what else I can say.

Grandma - you were one of a kind; no one like you has come before you, and no one will ever be quite like you. I would brag to my friends growing up how cool you were! How many people can say their Grandma rides a Harley?! Or was in the Circus?
You will be missed greatly, but your crazy personality, infectious smile, and that little chuckle will live on with us forever. Thank you for showing me how to be myself. Love you Grandma!

When a friend here in Yellowknife was crushed by a piece of machinery, I told him my Aunt Ruth was crushed by an elephant in 1946 and lived to be nearly 100! (He recovered).
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Ron I remember your mom's warm smile and her fun easygoing outlook on life!! My name is Ken Holdcroft . I used to come over with Harry Christofferson & Harland Kinder, probably around 1975 or 76. &we; would party in your room and listen to loud rock music! Your mom was a cool mom!she would maybe only come into the room the tell us she was leaving or she just got back or to check and see if we had enough chips or soda! I just remember her smile and her easygoing nature!
