Condolences

Terri, Shelly and families, I am so sorry about the loss of your mother. She was a real spitfire and had a wonderful sense of humor a true one of a kind. I will always remember her and your dad up north at the cabins and the fun we had as kids, much of it was because of your parents. I really loved them both. I pray for you both.

Shelly and Terri and families,
We are sorry for the times ahead where you may grieve the presence of your mom, grandma, and great grandma, your dear beloved one. Those moments of missing our deceased parents are hard but I guess it tells how much joy and love we received from them. May you continue to be comforted by thinking of how your mom and dad are together and with the Lord.
Your Aunt Evelyn was saying what a hard worker Donna was and such fun! When I and Dave think of Aunt Donna and your childhood home, cute fun little dogs and amazingly tasty and beautiful cookies that your mom made all come to mind. God bless your time celebrating your mom's life and enjoying family and friends.
— Debbie Green Campbell
