What a wonderful lady so sorry for your loss. She was a great gal and now she is with Ruthie. I always enjoyed talking to her and her husband at the American grill.
So sorry for your loss. Mrs. Bennett was my kids bus driver. She was very kind.
So sorry to hear this. Worked with her at Lewistown for years. Lived across the street from the family when Mom and Dad bought the old Rasmussen house. Prayers for all her family.
We are very sorry to hear of your loss. I remember Edie well from my high school years when I used to babysit with you kids. That job helped me get through high school as I did not live at home any more. She and Kline were great to work for, not that it was much work. I saw her a few months again at Graham Hospital and though I did not at first recognize her, she remembered me right off. It made me feel so good. My sympathies to you all!
I am so sorry for your loss your mom was a great lady. My thoughts and prayers are with you
As a neighbor during my teen years she put up with a lot of late night shenanigans' from my friends and I. One night in particular when Susie Ford had out of town boys (who were showing at the Fulton County Fair) camping out in tents in her parent's yard. Bless her heart. I'm surprised she didn't call the police on us. My sincerest sympathies to Bud, the girls and families.
So very sorry to hear of Edie’s passing. Sending many prayers to her family in this difficult time.
So sorry for your loss. Ralph and Anna Parkinson
