Memories Timeline


  1. Pat, Nancy & families——I just want to extend my sympathy to all of you at this sad time. I have many special memories of Lorranine that I hold dear to me—-from growing up on a farm close to hers, to the trips she’d come on with my mom to St. Luke’s Nursing School when I’d forget my purse at home!, to just spending time with her and we’d talk and laugh. I’ll always remember when vodka slushes were in!!!(we drank buckets of them—–not all at once, of course!)
    It gives me comfort to know she is has now joined Leonard in heaven—they’ve been apart a long time! She supported me when my husband, Steve, died, too.
    May you find comfort in knowing I cared about her.
    With my deepest sympathy & love—
    Tudy Kaune(Toddy & Vince Zeien’s daughter)

  2. I am sorry to hear of Miss Boss’s passing. She was my teacher before she was married.
    She was one of the best teachers I ever had in 17 years of school.
    I am also happy that I had the opportunity to visit with her last Summer and that my wife had an opportunity to meet her.
    She was a grand lady.
