    Shar- I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. My Mom, Lois, used to have lunch at Santa Lucia with your Mom, many years ago. My Dad died recently, I still feel him near me. She will always be by your side.

    To the family of Eunice Sitter, my sympathy, in the last few years we became special friends-she was a friend to my parents and I-when my Mom and I moved to Fargo for the two winters she was so excited-we had good visits-then when my Mom passed away she was there for me in so many ways, I thanked her many times. When I decided to move to Fargo, she was really excited and I found a Condo close to her. We enjoyed going to church, Sons of Norway and going out to eat, it was always a toss up who was going to drive. She loved her family and friends=enjoyed the computer and driving her Car=-she knew Fargo like a BOOK. She left her family and friends with special memories.
    I miss her and know we will meet again
    Bless her memory

    You have my most sincere condolences for the loss of your Mother. Mrs Sitter was my teacher in Towner and was real nice to us kids. We all missed the Sitter Family when they left Towner. Take care all of you and I hope the void left by your Mothers passing quickly fills with great and happy memories of Mrs Sitter and your family. David M. Jaeger Class of 1975

    Eunice will be missed so very much! I first met her at First Lutheran Church where she always was every Sunday morning. We had many cups of coffee with a lot of great conversations. Eunice was highly intelligent and shared her wisdom with me on many occasions. Her interests included Sons of Norway, which she loved dearly. Eunice, I’ll see you again and we will continue our great conversations.

    .I haven’t been in touch with Eunice lately, and have thought about her so much. Bev Thompson, Carole Bohlken and myself used to get together and have so much fun together. I still remember that wonderful Birthday Party at Sandy’s house.and meeting her beautiful Daughters, who she thought the world of! She talked alot about her Grandchildren too, and how proud she was of them. Eunice will be missed by many!
    My Sympathy,
    BJ

    Eunice was a friend and neighbor for many years. She was an outstanding teacher. Interestingly enough, the Towner School was having the “All School Reunion” the day she died. She received a special honor at the 100th Reunion for her contributions in education. Eunice touched many lives during her years as a teacher and friend.

    Eunice was a blessing to many ! We are indeed fortunate to have had her as a friend . Blessed be her memory !

    Sharon, Sandy and Shar,
    I am so sorry to learn that Aunt Eunice has passed away. I will always remember her energy, interest in the world and love of life (especially dancing!) It was wonderful that Dad and Aunt Eunice were able to keep in such good contact in later years by internet.
    You and your families are all in our hearts and prayers.
    Love,
    Leslie
