I have very fond memories of our times with Layne, from the times visiting her and her three little girls until her last days here in League City. She was always so full of joy and such fun to be with even in the final days. Her last request of us was for jelly doughnuts, which of course we took to her. She called our Dad her twin brother so we always called her Aunt Layne and we will miss her.

My dearest Elaine - friend and supporter! My first acquaintance of her is when she lived in Mountbatten House Assisted Living. She was there and later left, but later moved back. When I was new there she encouraged me as their Activity Director. I remember she really did not care about doing crafts, but she came anyway and told others to attend too. She found she had a little craftiness in her after all! Of course, she was crafty in many ways. lol When she left to live with Mary, her daughter, I gave her a few items she really enjoyed using to make cards with. I will always treasure the cards she sent me every Christmas, along with short letters! There is a warm, loving spot in my heart for her that will dearly miss her! Prayers for the family for peace, comfort and rejoicing for her free spirit!

My first memories of Mrs. Kroeger are from the early 1970’s getting the pool ready for summer, Christmas parties, and playing pong and pool until Midnight. We always had to be gone by midnight. Who would of imagined our lives would have been entwined for the next 47 years. I remember harassing her about going to her 45th high school reunion and here I am coming up on mine. We didn’t always see things the same but as time has gone by I now realize she was always right. I will always remember going to the house in the winter and bringing all those plants in and out as the weather changed. You Will Be Missed!

MoMo was an amazing woman and I am so blessed to have known her. She never met a stranger and gave everyone a smile or wry comment, even within the last few weeks as we reminisced about our many precious shared memories. Believe me, I will never live down falling asleep at the wheel while driving in NM! Lance and I especially appreciated her treating us like her own...maybe not by blood but chosen family! Thank you to Mary and all of the Kroeger clan for sharing her with us. We love you and will miss MoMo dearly!

Momo was such a very loving and caring lady. She was always so sweet and did not meet strangers. I remember her at all her grandchildren's Ball games at the Little League park and at the Cook Offs. She will be missed by all who knew her. I pray that God will wrap his arms around her whole family and provide them peace, comfort, rest and that God will lead guide and direct yall during this very difficult time period. Amen.

Momo taught me so many things. How to cook, sew, manage money, to be a strong woman like her. She took care of me after school for the longest time, so that's when I learned many life lessons. I have this memory of throwing a can of corn back and forth in the living room and being so impressed that my 75 ish year old grandmother could catch and throw so well! I have so many amazing memories of times spent at her house (such a unique place), taking vacations across the globe, attending parties, and just visiting. I believe I got my love of reading from her because we both devour books. She was such a forward thinking and open minded woman and I will cherish all the time we had. Love you Momo!
