Memories Timeline


  1. Green Bay WisconsinHi Kay – I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your Mother and Mine were very good friends way back when. I so enjoyed your Mother, remembering the many barbacues our friends had at your home or ours. Spent lots of evening with Grant’s and my friends at either backyards. Still hear from many of our classmates. Grant and I went thru all 12 years of school together either at Kelso and then on to Hillsboro. Our parents took turns driving us to Hillsboro, as I count up the kids we were about 7 kids each morning and evening, till we older ones finally took over driving our own siblings. Your Mother was such fun, remember the Birthday Club gals coming and the many projects they worked together on. Sincerely, Arlene

  3. Kay,
    I’m so very sorry to see Alice’s passing. I’m truly heartbroken. Alice was such an amazing woman! I loved listening to her play her hermonica. I have so many wonderful memories of Alice but the one I will never forget is how happy she was to see you every time you came. Her face always lit up and you could just tell you made her day every time. I’m going to miss Alice a lot. She made work fun! It’s been great getting to know Alice and you over the last year. I hope you find peace in knowing she’s always watching over you. I’ll be sure to send lots love thoughts and prayers to you and the family. Thank you for letting be apart of her life.
