    She was indeed, a lady, and we will miss seeing her at her weekly visits to “the store,”..always a smile, and a kind ” hello.” She will be sorely missed. Our heartfelt sympathy and prayers go out to the family..another “old timer ” is gone…. Mike and Vicki Frank

    “A beautiful angel is all that is here
    Saying O’Lord please leave me here
    Not ready to leave but has to go
    Wants to go back but God says no
    A husband and children
    Grandchildren and friends
    A meaningful life that suddenly ends
    And angel is what she was meant to be
    Now think of all that she can see
    Watching over her family night and day
    Saying I love you in her own special way
    In the night we sleep and in the day we cry
    While she watches us all from her star in the sky”

    I remember when I first lived in Concrete I used to watch the three most beautiful women walking up and down my street. They all had the most beautiful long blond hair. I always knew that they were too good for me and I knew they would never want to have anything to do with the likes of me. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Linda became my closest friend and through her I had the blessing of knowing her mom, Becky. In 23 years I never heard a “bad” Becky story. She was the most loving mother and giving person I have ever known. I feel blessed to have had the pleasure of knowing her and her family over the years. I will be praying for all of you in hopes that you can find peace in this time of grief.
    Love, Andrea

    “Jason’s Grandma” was one of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever had the opportunity to meet. She was a small town gal with a big-time heart. I always remembered her with a broad smile and a quick wit; always looking for the joy and humor in life. What stood out most to me was how well she put up with Jason and I as rowdy teenagers. I had tremendous respect for her openness and her ability to embrace us kids despite the craziness we were often up to. She had a free and caring spirit and it showed brightly. My love and blessings to the entire family.
