My memory of Elisabeth Weidner would be the special bond she shared with her loving and caring family that took the time to enjoy life with her and tend to her needs. As her neighbor I would see her fishing with her son inlaw John, sitting on the deck and going places with family.
Elisabeth was a very unique lady with a great personality that could put a smile on anybody's face with just a simple hello.
