I am so going to miss my step mom Loni. She and I would talk about anything in general. I'm going to miss hearing her lovely German accent and her spit fire way of talking that she made me laugh so hard sometimes. I know you're in Heaven and watching over us.

She is such a loving person I met her for the first time with my best friend and she accepted me as if I were family.. I remember one morning being awake and just sitting with Loni Jane and her grandma we were just sitting on the porch talking about life and can remember the way she said loni janes name. She made you laugh no matter what she will always be missed with the memories I have I will definitely cherish. Love you Loni you will always be in our hearts

I'm a family friend, I will always remember she would always put me to work in the yard, bagging leaves or inside moving things. She was always very nice, sweet, and genuine. She just simply loved sitting and talking for hours. The company she loved! Im going to miss her sitting on her patio in her yard admiring her flowers and her birds that would come bathe in the bird baths she had. I will also remember her last Christmas which was her favorite holiday, I made her a GIANT plywood sign with woven lights that said "Merry Xmas" and we all signed it Isch Liebe Disch which I know was I love you in German. She was so happy to see it from her bay window, we faced it towards the house instead of towards the street. πŸ˜† (Grandpa was mad we faced the sign the 'wrong way') but we knew she needed the sign to face HER window so SHE could enjoy it. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU AND MISS AND LOVE YOU GRANDMA! (YES I called her grandma)

Pic is from a Christmas awhile back me, her grandson andrew and of course Loni ❀

Im one of her many grandchildren, named after her and my mother Jane. I always remember coming home from school and asking her what certain words in German meant, some she'd get wide eyes because well, they were curse words. πŸ˜† She would still never fear to teach me what the word meant. Our phone calls daily consisted of me, "Was ist los?" And grandma always replied, "The hund ist los und Katze ist im Keller." It was our thing, I will miss dearly. Another thing grandma did to everyone was when she'd offer money for moving one of those lovely couches or chairs, we'd kindly decline and Grandma would shove the money into our hand or pocket and say "Hold your mouth, keep it" which meant be quiet and dont say no. πŸ˜† πŸ˜₯

Remember the red lipstick grandma! πŸ’„

I am the 2nd born girl but born 3rd after my brother.
Born in Germany my Mother's home country, along w/ my older brother & older sister.
My younger sister was born in Kentucky (USA) when my Dad got orders to return and pick where he would retire.
He chose Ft. Carson but first we would live in California, Kentucky,& visit my father's Brother's & Sister's in Toledo, Ohio ( hope I got that part correct )
We would become Cowboys & Cowgirls ( in our heads ) live along the Mountain Range, camp , fish, I believe the Mountain Range is what kept us from missing Germany so much but you could tell at times Mom really missed her family.
While Dad was down range with his platoon (πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) we were at home teaching Mom English ( well kinda)... She might catch us talking to each other with hand gestures & we had to be careful because she might not get the correct meaning of what we were doing & then reuse it on Dad...which would be quite embarrassing for us and our sore butts.
Mom got a job at Eisenhower Hospital in Colorado Springs, CO., despite her fainting at the site of blood...some 15+ years and the hospital was closing down...we thought she should go into interior decoration because she would buy numerous furnishings, rugs, paintings, & could make a really fancy tea room or Dining Room or Fancy Livingroom and would do the paintings of walls or wall paper herself, matching curtains w/ rugs, pillows, ect.
Our mom was pretty good with her flowers & bushes & outside decorations.... I kept trying to get her to do the Home & Garden Center Contest but she liked doing the work herself not order a crew around. I just knew she would've won it....
She might see a pic in a magazine or a clip of a movie and she would shop the thrift stores or local antique or auction houses and she would aquire the items needed and she's off changing the wall colors or furniture...
Just when you thought she was done,she'd pull up with a set of wing back chairs & lamps & she'd start a redoπŸ’žU
