Bobbie, we are so very sorry for your loss of Nona, she is a beautiful lady. She is the same age as Tony was when he went home to the Lord. They are so much better off. No pain , God is taking care of them. If you want to talk just give us a call and we will be glad to talk.or listen. We do know how you feel.

Be anxious for nothing in all things give thanks. God knows your pain. Talk to him.Love you with all our hearts.

Very shocked and very very sorry to hear about nona's passng.

I worked at starlight video with her and have a lot of memories of the fun times we had working there.

My deepest sympathy to the family.


Thinking of all her friends and family that my mom has made an impact in your life. There are so many she would go out of her way to help. She loved to help guide people down the right path. She was a big supporter of my Dad, Tanner, Alyvia, and me she wanted all of hopes, dreams, wishes to be granted! She fought this battle for all of us! She wanted us to know she tried her very best to live as long as she could! Thank you to all that helped my family and during the days she needed us the most! Just know she loved each of us as her own!

You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Heaven definitely has another loving angel to watch over those in need. I am certain there were many waiting at the gates to welcome her home. I know you'll continue her tradition of loving each other and getting each other thru the tough times. Love to you all! Debi, Dave & family


So many memories. I think the four of us were inseparable for years. Double dating with the love of our lives, long anniversary weekends, camping, cards all night ending with breakfast and so many more. You are missed so much but I know you and Jack are reminiscing over all the memories we created together. I love you!

Theresa (Frye) Sussdorf

I still remember the first time I met Nona. Her dad brought her over to our house when they first moved to the neighborhood. We both were about 6 or 7 years old. I remember that we played hopscotch and became instant friends. We were good friends for many years. She was such a sweet person. My prayers go out to her family. Rest in peace Nona.

Kelli Schabes. (Niece)
