I did not know Joline personally, only through her beloved brother, Jeff. He spoke often of her and was in constant contact with her during her recent illness. He always spent Thanksgiving with her in her home. Rest in peace, Sis. Sincere sympathy to Tom, Mark, Todd, and her entire family. Love, Jim and Pat (Mike) Riglin & family.
