She was great and I adored her. I loved it when I was able to bring her home from church she was a joy to talk with.
I will miss her, prayers to her family.

Our deepest condolences to the family . I know she will be missed by her family and friends . I will always remember , when she could have sweets, at Christmas I would make her fudge and she would make a German cookie for Gary . I enjoyed our conversations we use to have when she came to the Bank. Gary and Arlene Nau
