So sorry....Grace Marie was a special person and touched many lives and hearts. I told her once she made a comment about being old and I told her she was an antique doll. She was an individual who loved and treasured her family I admired her.

Bonnie, My mom and yours had a nice visit while they were waiting at the Drs. office just a few short weeks ago. Needless to say, she was shocked and we both want you to know we are thinking of you and yours in these difficult times.

Bonnie and Jackie, You have my deepest heartfelt sympathy. It was people like your Mother that gave me such fond memories of growing up in Noble County. I remember swimming in the creek at Hiramsburg and carry grocery for your Mother when you lived in Caldwell. She will certainly be missed, but cherish all of those great memories.
