    Dear Sink Families,

    I’m so sorry to see of Lois’s passing. I’ve know here for almost fifty years and she was such a sweet person. I last saw her at last years Clinton County Fair, there to see her grandchildren showing their 4H animals. She seemed so involved in her children and grand children’s lives. She seemed so spry for her age, I was amazed. Please know you are all in my prayers at this sad time.

    Ron I am thinking of you and your family during this sad time. Remember your Mom as the wonderful cream rhubarb pie lady and her other great food items she’d bring in (for you) to the lounge. She was always friendly when she was a Pink Lady and I had to go into the hospital for this or that. Always remembered that I was a twin also and my mama was Mrs. Gibbs. I know she will be missed but she lead a long and good life and was always there for YOU! Know I am thinking of you and the reason I cannot attend services is we are still wintering in southwest Florida. Jan

    Ron, Don & Steve – Joyce and I were so sorry to learn of your mom’s illness and passing. I remember visiting her and your dad on your farm when I was little. It was always so much fun to be out there and playing together when we were kids!! And they were such a blessing to us during the time my Dad passed away. I know you will hold many fond memories of her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Carol (Waling) Emrick

    Ron, Don, and Steve, may God give you strength and comfort as you face the loss of your mom. What special memories I have of our families being together years ago. Our parents playing cards and laughing while we all played. Spending time at the cottage. Those were special times. It is hard to believe all of them are gone but we are fortunate to have had them for many years. I still miss my parents a lot but cherish the memories, as you will.

  16. Marilyn Beard April 12, 2015 at 9:40 pm

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Many happy memories of events we were both involved in. Her smile was contagious. She will be missed

    by so many people.
