Phyllis Thomas

My Mom.....I can remember being her little helper as far back as my memory allows me to go. I can remember when she used to sing as she did her daily chores....and yodel. I used to want to grow up and look just like her cuz I thought she was beautiful. She was feisty and spirited. I suppose that's who I learned not to mince words, say what's on your mind, etc. She had her hands full with us kids and sometimes you could see she was a bit overwhelmed by it all...but she stuck in there trying to teach us not to steal, not to lie, how to clean up after ourselves, how to cook, how to be a family, how to work hard and how to take pride in ourselves and above all, get educated. I really miss her a lot, somedays I catch myself thinking," I gotta call Mom and ask her this or tell her that, and then I remember that she is gone" and it is a shock for a minute. I know she is in a better place without pain and suffering and for that I am grateful but I cannot articulate how much I miss her and wish I could hear her sing about bluebirds in her window. Miss you Mom.

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Jean's family. She was an amazing woman. She had such a huge capacity to love and spend time with her children and their children. She loved us all unconditionally.
There are a couple of memories that stand out to me. I was about 14 and going out with Brian, her son. We hung out at Jean's. She was mad at Brian and said something to him as we were leaving one day. I said to Brian "I think she was talking to me." Jean stuck her head out the door and said "if I was talking to you, you'd know it!" I came to know that was true. She never minced words. The second time was when I ran into her and she asked about Brian, our son, her grandson. He had been in a terrible accident and recuperating at a transitional care facility. She said she'd like to see him so I arranged to pick her up and take her. We stopped and picked up dinner and ate with him. Everytime I saw her she asked about how both of us were doing. She genuinely cared about us. She spread a lot of love around. I'm blessed to have known her.

She was an amazing grandmother. She always made me feel loved and cared for and I will always cherish my memories with her. Her being apart of my life has played a major part in me being the woman and mother that I am today. I will love her always

Such a wonderful Auntie she was! I have so many wonderful memories, I don't know where to begin! All the Saturdays we spent together at our house in St. Paul, playing cards, baking cookies, laughing and telling stories....special times! Vacation trips to Spirit Lake, Iowa, where we all stayed together in one cabin! Kids stacked up everywhere, but it sure was a good time! Visits at Red Rock Manor, where she and Mom had separate apartments, but wandered back and forth to each other's apartments, listening to them have their sister spats, LOL, and then the next second everything was just fine! Oh those two where a pair! Knowing they are together again (and more than likely having their little spats!) makes me feel happy for the two of them! Aunt Jeanie was a very special lady, like a second Mom, and I will miss her so much. So lucky to have wonderful memories to hold in my heart. Love you Auntie!
