Aunt Jean was a second mother to me my entire adolescent life. Throughout my adult life she has been an inspiration to me through her faith in God and her belief in salvation and eternal life. She is at peace now with her Lord, her beloved husband Edmund, her son Tim and her 11 brothers and sisters who preceded her in death. My sincere condolences to her family and friends. Rest in peace my sweet aunt, I love you!!!

I just found out about your loss. I remember just what a beautiful lady she was. I'm out of town or otherwise would be there for the visitation. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with the family. Precious memories of your mom and dad at Calvary Temple. God bless.

I'm so thankful for you, Mom. You and Dad were always there for me. You were my best friend that would stay up late until I got off work and I would tell you all about my evening in labor & delivery. You were always interested in everything in our lives. You prayed us safely to Alaska. You were there when we came out of the delivery room with Amelia. You were so thrilled. I loved our impromptu paper bag picnics at Fellows Lake! I love you so much. I'm thankful your suffering is over and you are in heaven with Jesus. I bet Dad and Amelia met you at the gates! I look forward to heaven--this is not my home. All my love forever, Vickie
