Elma made Christmas time special with her world class coconut bon bon’s! Very easy to talk to and a wonderful sense of humor. Anyone would fare well in this life having just a third of her work ethic. Will be missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing her.
God Bless

Steve and Marla, Your mother was a lovely lady with a lot of SPUNK! I know how sad this is for you and I wish this hadn't happened when I am at KC at granddaughter's first communion. Know you two are in my heart and prayers. Love you two! Pam and (always Dan). P.S. I imagine Dan is getting to know your mom as we speak.

We lived in the country near Schulte growing up. Mom loved her coffee and had a cup in her hand many hours of the day. If she wasn’t in the house we could find her by following the trail of coffee cups she would leave behind...they would be found in the hatchery, in the chicken house, on top of a post on the fence out by the barn.....she loved a hot cup of coffee on those hot summer days.

Remembering mom from her younger days. Seemed like she never slept because she most often was the last person to bed and the first person up in the morning. She taught us all a great work ethic.
Our family enjoyed her Christmas candy for many years You are already missed Mom.
Much Love
Mike and Susan Seachris
