  2. Sis was a special person and an awesome horsemen ! I have good memories from the saddle club,Sis was always there. RIP Sis. To the family,I’m sure you all have good memories ,treasure them,family is a blessing !!

  3. How sad to read about the passing of Sis, but what good memories it brought back. My sister Jane and I did a lot of riding with Sis, and what fun it was. We could count on seeing her at the fair at all the horse activities. And long ago we got to watch her as the entertainment, doing her trick riding and roping. We hope good memories like this will help you through this sad time. Our sincere sympathies to all of the relatives and friends of the well loved Sis.

  4. Very sorry for your loss. Sis was a singular force of life, full of vigor, independence, and love for those around her. She didn’t shy away from speaking her mind, and what she had to say was often just what you needed to hear. Memories of my childhood riding horses are full of her example, guidance, support and encouragement. Her memory lives on in the lives of those she touched.

  5. It was and is my privilege and pleasure to have known and been friends with Sis. She earned my love and respect. She forgot more about horses and horse sense than most people will ever know in their lifetime. See you later, friend.

  6. I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of Sis. She was always a pleasant and very pleasurable person to be around. My sincere condolences go out to the entire family. Ecclesiastes 3:4 says “A time to weep,and a time to laugh,a time to mourn,and a time to dance. Sis is dancing in heaven! Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

  7. Thoughts and prayers go out to the Family so loved
    Staying over with her we would stay up half the night
    Just giggling and talking she will always have a place
    In my heart I treasure the memories God Bless her
