    My sympathies to our wonderful former neighbors. Many fond memories of Wynne Ann as we kids hung out at the Ehrhart house to play ball etc. She was a good neighbor & thoughtful friend to my mom. Sad that another good soul has left our world.

    Wynne Anne was a very special person and was easy to talk to. She was a lot of fun at family gatherings. I always enjoyed spending time with Wynne Anne and Jim at Dan and Rita functions. Her kindness and gentleness was always present. She will be missed by many. We will be thinking about Jim and your entire family in the weeks and months to come. God will give you peace! Doug Eisma
