    I really enjoyed your Mom. She worked with Gary’s mother, Leonora Peterson, at the Hillsboro Nursing Home,
    for many years. Leonora had great things to say about her. I was hoping to
    contact her for her birthday, but I was
    sick. Our sympathies to you and the family.

    I worked in the hospital office with Elaine Beyer for 20 years, so I also worked with your Mom. I saw her this past winter at the home. I had the opportunity to tell her, that I had a new great granddaughter named Olivia. She laughed when I told her that. I am so glad now that I was able to share that with her.
    She will be missed by many. as she was known by many that had worked at the hospital over the years.
    Bless her memory.
