Thinking of so many memories: Playing the game "Squeek" with all my cousins, grandparents aunts and uncles (if you are related you know the game!), sitting in the front yard watching parades during the summer, going to the cabin in Spicer, and of course one of the best "cookies and bar" baker! Many sweet memories. You will be dearly missed. Praising Jesus we will see you again in all His Glory! Much love. Mary

So many wonderful memories of aunt Del! Getting lost after church and a man bringing me to Aunt Dels house! Going to the Green Lake and Aunt Del always busy in the kitchen to make sure there was lunch and dinner ready, and she never, ever forgot a birthday or an anniversary! You will be missed dearly Aunt Del! Love you and you are free and at home now with family! Until we see each other again someday! Beth

Dad let me know of your mom's passing. So sorry for your loss. I remember Delrose as being so kind and welcoming with a gentle sense of humor. She made me feel so welcome...like my home away from home. Love,Greta (Sundberg) Pridgen
