So sorry Gwen and Clancy God Bless

Grandma always showed up. She was always there. Birthdays, Holidays, babysitting, family dinners. She never failed to send a birthday card with money all the way through my 18th birthday. She would go out of her way to tape our favorite movies when they were on TV. We would play checkers and solitaire and talk about what birds she saw from her back porch. She was always so good about keeping Mom and Dad’s rules. No power rangers or ninja turtles when we watch TV. I loved when she would watch us for a week or so when Mom and Dad were away. She would make the best Ham and Bean soup. The family member I missed the most when we moved from Wooster to Marysville (besides Adam) was Grandma. Grandma loved Jesus. She lived that love in the way she cared for her loved ones. She lives a life of steady consistent present love. She was everything a grandmother should be.

Kelly, Clancy,Gwen, and families,
We offer you our sincere condolences with the passing of your mom. I (Teri) worked with her cleaning the old church office. We always enjoyed each other’s company. Stud was a joy to work with. We will keep you all in our prayers.

Kelly, Gwen, Clancy and Matt, so sorry for the loss of your mom. May her memory always be for a blessing.

So sorry to here about your loss. My Mom,Ruth Roberts (Becker) remembers all the good times they had together as kids. Mary Ann was a blessing to have as a cousin. May God bless you and your family and I pray his comfort surrounds you all at this time.
