Memories

I was saddened to read about your mother's passing. I had a nice visit with both your mom and dad a few years ago at some function at Trinity in Medford. They asked about my son, Jace, and then they talked about all of you, where you were living, what you were doing, and of course, their grandchildren. It was great! They were so proud of their family. You have my deepest sympathy. Annette

Memories

I got to know your mother while she resided at Countryside. She and my mom, Ruth Pelinka, became such good friends. They used to spend much of the day together and then would always have their goodnight call before they retired just to make sure they were both okay and not miss anything that might have happened since they last saw each other. They sometimes would inadvertently wear the same color, think the same thing, etc. They were such good friends. Your mother was delightful and it was my pleasure getting to know her and have her in my mom's life. They were both happier for their friendship. You are in my thoughts and prayers! Carol

I remember back to all the "fun" we had AFTER Luther League. Who would have thought we could get into so much mischief attending a church youth group. But they are fond memories of Medford. Sympathies to your entire family. Your mother was such a nice lady.Without a doubt, she will be missed.

Memories

Marlys will be remembered as a lovely woman. She loved her family and was proud of them all. Her pins and broaches always made me smile and I enjoyed the story behind each one. It was my pleasure to have known her and CountrySide will miss her.
