ADD A MEMORY Dederer Ames

It is still and will always be a treasured memory of being at your family home on Meadow Rd watching and listening to our giggling parents playing pinochole at the dining room table. I can still hear your mom's very distinct voice calling me Suz, asking if I needed anything to drink as I grab a pizza roll from the corner of the table.I go back to watching the Donny and Marie show in the living room,and at commercial time try to count how many owls are in the house ...last count was 53.
I'm sure there was more.

I am sorry for your loss. I have many great memories of our years together at Eastern High, graduating in 1949, as well as our collaboration on several of our class reunions. I truly valued her friendship over all these years. It was truly a blessing knowing Chotts.

Submitted by Gerry's daughter, Terri, in Oak Ridge TN. She regrets not being able to attend the memorial service. Mom has moved into independent living at Pickersgill in Towson, MD.

I have many happy memories of Aunt Chots. Our relationship goes way back. I remember her one time showing me a picture of her and me at the beach. I couldn't have been more than 2 or 3 at the time. Our relationship continued to grow through the years. I remember many good times at her house. I remember swimming in her pool.
I remember spending the night at her house. I remember the bridal shower she gave me. I remember Bob and me playing cards at her house with her and Uncle Bill. I remember her and I going to church at Trinity together. She was a role model for me. Thanks Aunt Chots for all the happy memories. I will love you always and forever 💗

So many loving memories that I have of beloved Aunt Chots! The memories of all of our family gatherings and one especially of spending the night at her house as a young child after attending a Moose Lodge (I believe New Year's Eve celebration) and driving home in a snow storm. She never seemed to be at a loss for words and it was so very easy to just sit and spend time chatting and catching up. Her smile always made me feel special and cared for! I know she will be welcomed with open arms by all of her loved ones that have passed before her. Prayers for the family as she will be truly missed yet remembered for all time!
