So Sorry Diane and Family for your loss. Will keep you and your family in my prayers. She was a dear friend to my parents Alex and Barb Kemner always reached for my mom's hand and when coming back from communion at St Francis Church and she would always give me myself a smile also. Besides the laughter and conversations we had when she was also at the Diane house in her hair salon. A true treasure to all who knew her.

I was sorry to learn of Norma's passing---she was a very nice and kind lady. I have fond childhood memories of her as I spent a lot of time at the Hoffman household. Jean and I were good friends in grade school but lost contact through the years. Norma was well known in the community when she spent her nursing career at St. Mary's Hospital. Extending my condolences to her family---RIP Norma Jean. .
