Ms. Kitty, I will always carry you in my heart and think and speak of you with fondness of memories. You entered my life when you met Rick, became a froend to me, and later became Godmother to Russell's and my son, Corey. Fern, you were always strong in character, morally steadfast and sound, whole and obligated in your convictions, and loving and caring to all. Kitty, may God keep you close to Him and hold you gently, forever. I thank you for your friendship and the many words of wisdom you gave to help me understand this life and the people we encounter! RIP.

Kitty was a very caring and loving woman inside and out. We will forever be grateful for her and Rick's loyalty and long time friendship, Harley trips, even coming to Iowa to meet Lora Lee's family and during her passing. I know Lora will be there with open arms to hug her best friend again. We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Rick, James and Sherry and those 2 grandsons that Kitty loved spending time with, they were her world. RIP sweet lady. You're all in our thoughts and prayers 🙏
Judy Schares, Deb Jacobsen
