Condolence & Memory Journal

I worked with your mother over 45 years at Nipsco. Thinking of her and your father , Peach, I went to internet and looked for info on her. Im sure you are still missing her. How she loved u two girls and her sweet husband Peach. We laughed a lot and had good times . Just wanted you to know how she touched my heart in late 60s and 1970 when l left to have our first son. Much love to you ,

We were so sorry to learn of Jean's passing. Mom and Dad have wonderful memories of the time the four of them spent together in their younger days. Mom was just telling some friends on Christmas Day what fun they were. Sending you, Linda and Mary, our deepest condolences and love from the Stroud family. Cindie Stroud Neterer

Linda. I don't know if you remember me, I lived down the street from you & we were really good friends during high school. I am so sorry to hear about your mother. I know this is a bad time for you but if you have a few minutes while you are here for her funeral send me an email I would love to hear from you.
