We enjoyed visiting with Wauline at my mother Joan Jones home, as well as at the Gardens. She was a great friend to mom and they enjoyed many giggles over meals sitting at the own little "table for two" at Columbine. She always asked about our family and shared many fond memories of her family with us. God Bless!

Our mom was such a beautiful and kind human being in so many ways. She had an enduring quality about her, always very welcoming to everyone that met her and entered our home.
I will forever be grateful and I am very proud to be her daughter and to call her my mom. She taught me values of honesty and kindness, integrity and respect, self sacrifice and unconditional love.
I remember a happy childhood full of laughter and love and happy memories. Family was Everything to you and you Adored your grandchildren. They will forever know that they were loved and cared for by you.
Our father who served the deaconric ensured Christian values were always paramount as to being obedient in the Gospel and serving the Lord. I will miss her immensely but I am comforted in knowing that her strong faith in Christ entered her into the kingdom of Heaven. She is now joined by those that went before her in peace, in comfort, and in love.
I will look to the sky each night to honor and cherish your memory. I love you very much and I will miss you dearly.
Forever and Always,
Your daughter, Lezlie

My Aunt Wauline was my father's sister, and what a wonderful aunt she was! Her home was filled with love and always open to guests. She was a smart businesswoman but I will remember her most for her wonderful cooking and the fact that she was a great tour guide for the Colorado she loved and called home. She loved the Lord and her beautiful family. She has left a great legacy and will be sorely missed by those who were fortunate enough to have known her. God Bless and Keep You All in the Palm of His Hand! Ann Starr Counts
