I am so grateful to Auline for being such a wonderful niece to my grandmother Bertha (nee Fisher), cousin to my mother Emmajean Hagerty Bourquin and aunt Ruth Hagerty Kortz, and a role model to me. She embodied a generosity of spirit that will always inspire me. Rest in peace dear Auline. Love, condolences, and good memories to all of the family.

Dearest Rachelle,
I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. Not only do I have many memories of her hospitality when we were young playmates, but also recently, she would always stop by and give me a big hug when I was visiting in Blackhawk. She loved her Lord and family passionately and will be greatly missed!

She was one of a kind. I'll never forget her devotion to cousin Tom Koch after his horrible accident with three other electricians (including my dad and Tom Harris.) But, there was Auline-a person of hope, peace and healing. She is going to be missed.

I loved her...feisty, loving, always supportive of me. She was a hard worker, a woman of deep faith and so loved singing. One might think that second cousins are not that close, but we always felt a bond that could not be explained. As I said.....I loved her. Sing to your heart's content in eternity, Auline. What I would give for just one more conversation.

Rich, Rachelle, Roger and the rest of the family.
I am so sorry for the loss of your mom and a dear friend to so many. I had the pleasure of knowing Auline from the time I moved to Ft. Wayne 22 years ago and was honored to be able to sing in Joyful Noise under her direction as well as Chords when they reformed the group. Her smile and humor are unforgettable and I will miss her dearly. We know

Dear Rachelle, Rich and Roger,
It is with great sadness that we have lost your Mother and a great friend to many of us. She was a huge part of my life growing up in the church. Han and I loved her very much. We had many wonderful times together. She was so full of life and love. She had a giving spirit and would do anything to help anyone. Thank you for sharing her for many years as a friend and mentor. She was family and will be missed greatly. Love, Jane Zwienink Thompson

My sympathy to Rich, Roger and Rachelle. Auline was so proud of all her children.
I have so many memories of quick little trips over to see Auline to be sure she was okay and to take garden veggies to her. She was truly a friend to everyone and a great neighbor. She loved and missed Al so much and they are together now. Our neighborhood will not be the same without her. Rest in peace sweet lady. I love you.

Auline was more than just a neighbor. She was mentor,close friend, care giver,and such a loving and caring human. We met her in September 1989 as we moved into our home next to her and Allan. We discovered in 1994 just how how impactful Auline would be in our lives . My wife had been fighting Melanoma for 13 years & it had reached her brain finally . Sandie died on September 9,1994 at home surrounded by her loved ones.
