Memories Timeline


  1. Grandma oh how you will be so very missed. Your feisty French attitude is one we always chuckled about and loved listening to. I will always remember how hard you worked and all the big family Christmas’s we had at the farm. I always looked forward to that because we were all together as a family. I will see you again one day my dear Grandma and until then give Grandpa a big hug for me and have him hug you for me too. I love you so much.

  2. RIP dear Angela. I will always remember you and how hard you worked. You were a great woman. You made so many things special. Good memories.

  3. My dear grandma you will be missed by many. I will never forget the little bit of French you taught me and oh how you would laugh when I tried to say it after you. I can still see that twinkle in your eye. Until we meet again in Heaven grandma, love you.

  4. Carol and family, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss and we will be thinking about you and yours.
