My son and I had a lovely visit with T last summer. We had a nice dinner and talked about all of those crazy things we did in college and after that as well. T and I went on several golfing vacations in Iowa and Wisconsin, as well as tavern diving!! "I miss you , T"

Carolyn Reem on Jul 14, 2018

We have many fond memories of T and we will love and cherish them. She had a strong spirit and knew exactly what she wanted and didn't want. T and I spent lots of time on the golf course and I strived and struggled to hit my ball past hers. If I did, she was as delighted as I was. Love her. Carolyn and Roger Reem.

Our dearest T will be greatly missed. We will always remember her keen wit , wry humor, bright smile and hearty laugh. Well done, good and faithful servant. May you rest in peace.
