Ed & Family,

We learned of your mother's passing after returning from a two-week vacation visiting Bill's family in Wisconsin.

We're remembering with fond memories the 29 years your mother served St. John as secretary so faithfully. Remember Pastor Skibbe"s quote: "ROSE KNOWS", truer words were never spoken. She helped all members with her knowledge as she served when needed.

She also knew the one thing needful for her salvation, Jesus.

We're praying that you'll be surrounded by God's comforting love and filled with the peace only He can give each of you.


Our love, Bill & Donna Bonitz

Sorry, Ed, I missed the visitation for your mother on Friday. I really wanted to be there, but we were very busy with out-of-town family guests. I have many memories of her working in the office after Carla (now deceased) started on staff at St. John, and then all four of my children going through the school. I then truly enjoyed all the periodic visits with your parents in their home as I served as an AAL Representative. Both of them were great people! Within the next several days I'll be submitting a check to St. John as a memorial. God be with you as you remember, grieve, and yet at the same time give thanks for the wonderful heritage you were given!

Eddie - So so sorry to hear about your Mom passing away. Have some great memories of her, your Dad and you kids when we were growing up. Unfortunately we (Katie, Ruth Wambsganss, Paula, Jeanie, Julie and I believe my sisters) will be in Wisconsin during her showing. Thoughts and prayers for you and your family.
