  2. Cheri and Janni,
    I was so sorry to hear about Willene’s passing. She always seemed such a bright and cheerful person, no matter what her circumstances. I know you will miss her terribly. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.

  3. From the moment I walked next door and you asked me “could you go a beer?” I knew we would be fast friends. You always found something to compliment people on even when we weren’t looking so great. You were like an adopted grandma to my kids and so much more than a neighbor to me. Molly still misses you and Shobee too. Rest peacefully Willene, you touched so many.

  4. Willene, can’t believe your gone. Will always remember the good times we had together and phone conversations. You are now at peace and in a beautiful place. One day we will all be together

  5. I miss you so much Gram! I will always remember going to your house and eating Peaunt Butter and Jelly sandwiches and sour cream and onion pringles. You are the greatest ever!

    I Love You More Than You Could Ever Know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Love, Jess <3

  6. As we collected pictures and put them to music while working on your memorial presentation, we smiled, laughed and cried at the memories and moments that made up your life and our lives together. Though we lived far apart in miles, you were always close in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. While we are saddened to lose you, we are grateful to our merciful Lord that your suffering is over. We love you and look forward to seeing you again someday, in God’s glory.

  7. Grandma you will never know how much we will miss you! We love you so much! You were the wind beneath our wings: and the boost under grandpa. Nobody ever took care of grandpa the way you did! And in turn Cheri took care of you that way! You were the fairest grandma of ever: Everything was always equal! Everybody you came in contact with felt your love and warmth: you and old: Now Aunt Mary is blessed with spending time with you! This morning Chance said, “See grandma is not gone, she is in the paper!” We love you and will miss you very much!!!

  8. Bob and Jan and family, I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. It helps to know she is in a better place and out of her misery. There will always be that special place in your hearts that her memories will fill. I have a “big” place in my heart full of memories of Ed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless you all and keep the faith. Jill’s mom, Jane

  9. Willene, Rick and I enjoyed many meals together along with Jerry. I had a special birthday at Goomba’s restaurant with them. It was so nice and such fun to go out to eat at different places. Rick and I will miss her.
