    I am so sorry to hear the news of the loss of your mother. Ron, Jane, and Diana I hope you are able to find comfort she is no longer in pain. She is now reunited with her parents Joseph and Marguerite and my mother, her sister Marjorie. Arlene, my Aunt, was always so welcoming to me whenever our paths crossed at West Acres, grocery stores, casinos or playing bingo. She always knew who I was and was eager to know more about my family and siblings. She will remain in my memory as always smiling. A mothers love of her children will never go away. Remembering the happy days I hope will bring your hearts peace. Sincerely your cousin Janet (Lemke) Diederick.

    Arlene was a sweetheart. I enjoyed our visits when she would call the office. She always made it a point to ask about my family and then give me a rundown on her plans for the day! She will be missed. Thinking of you all.
