Our prayers and condolences on the passing of your mother. She was a good friend to my grandmother, Cleo Miller (Peterson). I will remember her as a kind, caring and always interested lady. God bless. Kristi Kotrous (Simonson)

I love you Aunt Thelma ~ You and Jim (Carolyn & Dennis) were a huge part of my life growing up. I have such sweet memories of camping, Grandma's cabin at the beach, Holiday dinners, house-sitting when you were in Hawaii, your laugh, and clear eyed view of the world. I shall miss you much.

We will miss Thelma. Mom and I were fortunate enough to share the trip to Ireland. It was a lovely time. We also have many memories of camping, huckleberry picking and lots of good times with the family.
