Luanne was a gentle soul, full of grace and compassion. Our fondest memory of her was all the family gatherings that we sat and had a conversation with her. She always asked after everyone and gave wise counsel in many things. Her smile could light the room. You will be missed, but will see you again. Much love K&M

She was always in the sanctuary during bell practice, when Amy was playing. I thought of her as our "biggest fan", yet was more than likely a "supportive mom". She had a ready smile for anyone in need. I will miss her.

I have known LuAnne for many years, I remember the years when she was volunteering to watch babies while their teenaged mothers completed high school at Snider. I have such good memories of visiting with her, she was always such a positive person and such fun to share your day with. I will miss her.
