Saw Jeannie every Sunday at Proctor when we went to have lunch with my mother-in-law. She knew all the Clasing's by our first name & would give us advice on the day's menu :) She was always uplifting & had a smile to share, truly a blessing in our lives & will be missed.

We are so sorry to learn of Dickie's passing. I remember her cheerful laughter when she got together with her sisters. Like most families when they get together, fun times and laughter were always part of the gathering. May God be with you and grant you peace and comfort during this time. God bless you. R.I.P.
