Your mom was such an amazing lady and will be greatly missed. I shall cherish all of our times together and have many memories of our lunches, trips to Sylvan Lake to visit Uncle Hank and Aunt Toni, and the activities we shared at Park Place. Your mom glowed when she spoke about her girls and held a special place in her heart for Barbie. Love lives forever and that is a gift she freely gave.

My heart aches for you all during this time. You shall be in my thoughts and prayers.
With love,
Sandi

Doris was a lovely lady with a sweet smile and twinkling eyes. I will miss seeing her and her pretty adornments at her front door. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I am Lloyd and Nancy Doehrmann’s youngest daughter, Janet Doehrmann Steager.My parents and I would always see Mr. and Mrs. Yergens at the 5:00 service on Saturday night at Gethsemane. My parents had the Yergens up to their lake cottage in the Summer. In 1999, my parents went to St. Petersburg, Florida, they would also visit your parents when they were in Florida in the Winter. Mrs. Yergens is a Angel in Heaven with God. She is with her Husband. My parents have another friend up in Heaven with them. ❤️
