Dearest Nyberg Family,
Many, many years ago I met Theda when our husbands went to the Lion's Club. She became a dear friend of mine from that time on. We always enjoyed talking about canning and cooking and we had fun picking berries in her yard. I was so glad I got to see her last fall before I went to Florida. We had a very nice visit together. She was very special to me! She will be missed but I know I will see her again in eternity. I'm thinking of you kids and your families during this difficult time. May God be with you giving you His comfort and strength.

Dear Karen and family,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother.
She lived a good, full and wonderful life. I remember her and your father well.
I am now eighty-three and have good memories of our times together at Elm Street School and especially our skiing jaunts next to my home on Lewiston Street across from the Advent Christian Campground. Fun!!

Your "old" friend,

Mr. Beckett

Theda Nyberg and her family were the first friends and neighbors we ever knew. We grew up across the street on Sunset Ave. Theda and my Mom were best friends...sewing, knitting, shopping and spent lots of time together. Mike, Karen & John were some of our very first and close friends.
Mike and I were especially close. Once when our Moms were shopping the Dads were left in charge. We were about 5 and 6 years old. Mike loved to scare me by saying there was a caterpillar on my back. This one time when he said it, I started screaming and it scared him, so he ran into the side of the house and got a bloody nose. This was the scene when our Moms returned from shopping: both kids crying, Mike with blood on his face, and the Dads having no idea how to handle this! Haha... this is just one of a hundred precious memories. Good people, good times with Theda and her family that I will never forget. God Bless Theda..... Sending my love and peace to her family.
Love, Donna Smith
