Post a Condolence

I am so sorry I missed your mom’s service. I am sorry for your loss Anne & Betty. She was a terrific lady. I remember her fondly as our Girl Scout leader. And I always loved going to her craft sales. Always smiling & letting me know she was truly happy to see me. Keeping you in my prayers.

Whenever we went to Aunt Lucille’s you knew you were going to have smiles and laughs. I remember when I took my husband Dan to meet her, he said ” hands down she is the happiest Aunt you have!”
She always had good advice, good conversation and THE BEST COOKIES. (next to grandma’s sour cream cookies Aunt Lucilles were the absolutely best!!)
She was the Decorama Queen and had a knack for decorating and crafting. It was an honor to be her niece eventhough I wasn’t able to see her much. God Bless all of the family, Ann and family and Betty and family.
A special thankyou to Kathy for reaching out, staying in touch, and keeping me up to date on the family.
Aunt Lucille will always be remembered and have a special place in my heart.

She was such a sweet person. Sending prayers to all of her family! I am originally from Belvidere. Mom’s last name was Klaas. When I came up home to visit, Nancy Lee & I would go over & visit with Lucille. We had a wonderful visit with her. She would show us her craft room!! We will never forget her lovely smile! We went to the First Baptist also growing up as a child.
