Grandma will be deeply missed but she is in a better place and has joined her sons, husband and siblings in heaven. She was a wonderful woman, mother, grandmother, friend. She was very, very supportive to her family and the best cook and baker in the county!! Rest in peace, grandma. We will meet again....

Our thoughts and prayers for your family on the passing of a dear mother and mother-in-law, grandmother and more. Her life well lived will be forever in all of your hearts. Jon and Martha Bollinger

What a long and blessed life. Arlene was one of my favorite Gas customers back when I delivered fuel to their farm.

Thoughts and prayers for you on the passing of Arlene. She will be deeply missed. She had a smile that could light up a room. Especially when she saw Nancy walk into a room.

Nancy & all family members, we are so very sorry to hear of the loss of such a wonderful person. Keep all the good memories and times that you all have had with her. May God wrap his arms around each one and give you the peace and comfort that only he has the power to do.

I have always held her tight in my heart. So sorry for your loss.

Nancy, Sandy and family; I will miss her smiling face when I go to West View Manor, she was such a fine lady, I hope to be like her when I grow up always looking her so pretty. Take care everyone. Sending love and prayers. Dianne
