Lottie was my aunt. I always remember her and her family coming in to visit my grandparents on Millcreek. She always was smiling and laughing. I always will remember her voice. She was a very special person. She was beautiful inside and on the outside, too.

I have so many memories of my sweet Lottie. She rode the school bus with me my first day of school. I'd see her peeking around corners to watch me, making sure I was okay. Then she rode the bus with me back home. She would wait with me every morning and wrap me up, trying to keep me warm. She would tell me to sing and I wouldn't be so cold. I sung a lot. She would take me to pick violets. She talked about that often since she got sick. Our lives were filled with violets, four leaf clovers, baby rabbits and kittens. She made everything fun. We built play houses and she had as much fun as we did. She cut paperdolls out for me. She was my best friend.

I will never forget the last time I talked with Lottie. She called me a couple weeks after our Chris passed. She was so cheerful & happy. She said she was so happy to talk to me & she loved talking to me. Of course she expressed how sorry she was for our loss. That was probably the first week of August. She is now in Heaven with Chris, Kent & Bobe. I know she is feeled with joy & the happiest she has ever been. RIP sweet Lottie. It is not goodbye, but see you again soon. Love you.

It was always such an event when Lottie and her family would visit back in Cleveland. It was like Christmas in July and some of my fondest childhood memories is watching how happy Lottie and her brothers and sisters were when they were back together for a day.

I'll always remember her smile and I'm not sure I really ever remember her when she was not smiling or laughing; she was a really resilient and tough woman with a heart of gold.

I'll never forget how much fun we had, when I spent the night😁 I always begged you to tell me stories, without your teeth..I had you laughing so hard, tears were rolling down your face. I can still hear your laugh and I hope I always can. Loved how we was alot alike. Big personalities and will talk to anyone. And both love to make people happy, and love to smile and laugh. And make a new friend anywhere..I'm going to miss you and thankyou for being the best grandma. I hope you have a table with a window, and you are watching the birds and laughing, and drinking coffee with Bobe and Kent. Can't wait to see you again.❤️ Love Amanda your crazy silly girl
