I’m terribly sorry we were out of town during the time of her remembrance services. On my way home from Dallas, Jerry‘s cousin Johnny Rozsypal called to explain why he and his brother Sonny hadn’t made it to the service either. Jerry had so many memories riding his bike to the Prochaska’s house. There was always enough boys for a football or baseball team. I loved driving by YEARS later and stopping to talk to her as she was in her yard doing something. I adored her🌹❤️🌹

Your mom was one of the sweetest woman I have ever met! She was a woman of great faith who raised her children accordingly! She was a hard worker and if anyone had seen her beautiful yard or garden, you know what I was talking about! She was an awesome baker and the many desserts she made for the LaSalle picnics proved that! She leaves a legacy of awesome children to pass down what their mom has taught them! She was truly an angel on this earth and I know she will be tending that beautiful garden in the sky! Condolences to all of her children and grandchildren! She was one awesome lady!!

You children were blessed with a sweet mother. You are in our thoughts & prayers. God Bless You. Dean & LaVonne Cooper
