So sorry to read of your mother's passing. My mother was a long time friend of Carol's at Peace Lutheran Church. Mom is 98 1/2 years old now and finally sold her home on Walbridge after 69 years there. She sure misses all of her friends from Peace. Sad to say that she has seen most of their obituaries. Virginia Ritter and Ruth Vogelbacher are still doing pretty well. Mom also was a dear friend of Janet Teems from Peace. She worked at Andersons with my sister Linda, who passed away at age 65. Our very best to you and your family. I know Carol is teaching Sunday School and singing in the choir in Heaven with Glenn. Sincerely, Sally and Dave Bennett and Erma Jirinec

Please accept my condolences at this most difficult time. Jesus opened the way for mankind to be released from death by means of the earthly Resurrection. Acts 24:15

My deepest condolences to you on the passing of Mrs. Teems . I remember her well from my Sunday School days at Peace Lutheran Church . One year she was in charge of the Christmas program which was a huge task! I was so proud to be chosen as a part of the angel choir. Unfortunately one of the requirements was that our families were responsible for making our angel costumes . We were very poor at the time, my mother was divorced and worked and had no idea how to sew. I will never forget the feeling of joy I had when the night of dress rehearsal came to find that Mrs. Teems had made my costume for me . With all she had to do she had taken the time to make sure that one little girl was not brokenhearted and excluded from the program. I will always remember her kindness !
