Allen and Debrah,
Our sincere condolences and prayers are sent your way in the loss of Allen's mom. Mothers leave such a hole in one's life when they pass especially when you've had the privilege of having them as a personal part of your and your children's adult lives for so many years. We remember that you talked so passionately about her when you were in WI for the family reunion in 1917. Not having met her, we know she had to have been a warm, caring and considerate person as one's children are mirrors of their parents. Here's hoping the many beautiful memories of happier times will allow you to smile and thank God for choosing her to be your mother and mother-in-law. Wishing we were closer to be of support, please know we care.

Al and Marcia Lechleitner, Eau Claire, Wisconsin

I had the privilege of knowing Kathy only in her later years. She was tough and soft at the same time! I will miss her.

I worked with Kathy at Lincoln General Hospital in Labor and Delivery for many years. She was a gentle woman who was most helpful in her supportive role. After retirement she would have coffee with a group of the "old" LGH nurses. We missed her after the move to be near her family but understood the need for that. We were blessed to have known her.
