    Linda and Sharon, we have wonderful memories of your mother and of Rodger, having lived next door to them for many years. We shared conversation, laughter, prayer, and Jeannette's wonderful baking and cooking, and we thank God for both of them. Although we now live in Pennsylvania, our memories are vivid and still bring smiles to our faces.  Our lives have been immensely blessed by both your parents and we are better people for having known them on our earthly journey. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of your dear mother. Bob and Irene Wegehoft

    I cannot tell you what  privilege it was to know your mom and spend many hours with her visiting.   Being a fellow WA-TAN-YAN brought us to many meetings and conventions and many good times.  Her humor was wonderful.  My late husband Bill adored her and I remember when he found out she liked Chinese food, we took dinner to her and enjoyed every minute.  Loved to hear all about her thimble collection.

    She will be missed by me as well as all her WA-TAN-YE sisters.
