Grandma was an amazing person. I always enjoyed spending the night at her house. I miss ordering pizza and watching movies together. She would always buy plenty of snacks for us and enjoyed telling storys about her life. During the holidays she would take me and my borther to the mall and help us shop for gifts for the family. I even remember the trip we took with grandpa. It was special because it was the only time we ever took a trip just the three of us.

I could talk to her about anything. Things I was unable to talk to my parents about she wouldnt judge you, just listen and talk about it. She always put her family first and would do anything for them. When your a child you never think about the future and what it holds. That one day the simple things you enjoy together will all be a memory. I know grandma would want us to keep moving forward and continue keeping her alive in our hearts and others. She touched many lifes and held her family together.

When I remember her voice I smile and now her memory can life on even after her passing. Even though her passing is sad she is now at peace. Shes looking down at us and one day we will be reunited with her and be proud that the qualities that she instilled in her family are carried on in furture generations to come. I will always miss you grandma.

RIP Aunt Lou. I have many loving memories of you. All of which remind me of your kind and loving nature. You loved to laugh and found the silver lining in everything. You took care of many family members without ever asking for anything in return. Thank you for being there when we needed you and opening your home to us. Even though we probably overstayed our welcome some times. 😁
You were an angel on earth and now in Heaven. Love you always.

We may not of gotten along at the very start especially when I would slam the dryer door closed just to annoy you. (I was only 13) but, the next 50 years were the best anyone could have ask for because you were there.
You were always loving and caring. You were always there to lend an ear to whatever someone had to say without judgement. You let us make our own decisions. I will forever miss those 2 hr phone conversation we frequently had even though we were only 30 minutes away from one another.
I will remember all the trips we went on together and the stays at the hotels where you were the one getting into trouble for running up and down the corridors with Chris and Matt playing hide and seek, playing which elevator will come first game with them. Those were great times. I love you and will miss you so much..

From the start you made me feel like a member of the family. I will miss your kind spirit & warm hugs.
I loved coming over to your house with Chris & hearing your stories about your childhood on the farm. Rest easy in heaven. ❤❤

Grandma, you always welcomed me in warmly to the family. Remember the big holiday meals you would cook for us. Many great memories when you came along with us with Bill to visit Colorado Springs. I will miss the bright smile and big hug you would give me whenever we met and the kiss on the cheek when we said good bye. A good soul. I will miss you forever.

Grandma was always an upbeat person who showed her love so openly. I remember countless times she surprised us with a visit. Just seeing her white car in the driveway gave me butterflies of excitement as a kid.

Some of my fondest memories we're when she showed up to take me and my brother to the movies and spend the night at her house. We'd hop in the car, she'd already have full size candy bars waiting for us, and a lot of them too, what else would a kid want? Then the evenings were spent making a pillow fort in the living room and watching Killer Klowns from Outer Space. No matter how many times we'd ask to watch that terrible movie, she'd sit there with us. I have so many more memories of her, which I'll forever keep with me. Love you grandma and thank you for everything you did for me. Matthew

There are too many kind words to describe a loving, caring, pure soul. Always there to help others and sacrificing herself many times to make sure family and friends were taken care of. I am overwhelmed with love in my heart to have had the privilege of having this special person in my life for over 50 years. She loved her family and loved life. Heaven has received another special angel and now she has been reunited with family and friends that are in heaven.

Love, Bea
