  1. Hi Ms. Verletic,

    I am Alene’s daughter. I just happened to be looking through the posts for my mom and was happy to find a new one. It meant a lot to read about your memories. I miss her. She was an amazing person. She talked about her friends from far away that were in her line of work. Her favorite time of year was Christmas. I wish I could have helped her to stay in touch. Thank you so much for reaching out.

  2. To the Pichler Family,
    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one, Alene. I began to search the internet when I did not receive a Christmas card from my friend and coworker, Alene. I worked at the central office of the Government Printing Office. My heart sank when I found about her passing. At Christmas time I always reach out to my former co-workers and friends. It was indeed a pleasure to work with Alene, she was always pleasant and helpful to anyone she met.
    May the God of peace reside with her until we meet again. My love and best regards for you.
    I live in Maryland. Worked for years at the main GPO in Washington, DC.

    • Hi Ms. Verletic.

      I just happened to look at the postings for my mother, Alene, even though it’s been months . It meant a lot to read about your thoughts. My mom’s favorite time of year and holiday was Christmas. It was hard for her to not stay in touch with friends. She talked about the people she knew from her job that lived in other states. I wish I could have helped her stay in touch. Thank you so much for writing. I miss her…

  3. To the family of Alene I send my heartfelt sympathy. She was a wonderful classmate and I remember
    most her beautiful smile and outgoing personality. May God Bless each of you and heal your hearts.

  4. It is with great sadness that I send to you, Alene’s family and her close friends, the sympathy and condolences of those remaining members of her 1955 Pueblo Central High School Wildcat classmates. Alene was one of our constant and dependable leaders. Her never-flagging school enthusiasm raised our spirits. Her academic achievement urged us all to try harder. She helped us to permanently identify ourselves with contributions to the school Central High Times newspaper and to the 1955 Wildcat Tales school annual. She was one of the classmates who would today elicit a great many responses of “Yes” to the question, “Do you remember Alene Teck? Hard to forget Alene. Each time we honor a newly deceased classmate, we become more and more aware of how small the class has become and how soon we will all be joining Alene and the rest of them. But, today, it is our honor to pay tribute to one more, one of the best.

    • Dear Duke,
      Thank you. That was a kind tribute for mom. Reading those words describing who she was, warmed our hearts and filled us with gratitude. Thank you. Brenda

  5. Dear Brenda and sister’s and family,
