Virginia was my Aunt, (her brother Dons' daughter). I have good memories of times when we visited during family gatherings. I still have some of the BEST pot scrubbers she crocheted for me one Christmas! She will be missed, but always remembered.

You will be greatly missed. I remember the time when you and my mother in law fished in Leon's pond. She still talks about it. Ken and I are sending our condolences to your family. Xxx

Dear Ms. Armes,

So very sorry to hear of your passing - you will be missed.

I still use the pot holders you made me on a daily basis. They have always been special to me and always will be.

Thank you so much ~

Dear Ms. Armes,
I will always remember your yummy pies. I had never had a grape pie until I had a piece of yours. I think I ate most of it! I loved the peach ones too. Thank you so much for making them for me every time I came home to Indiana. You will be missed. May you rest in peace. Love you, Tena
