Fond memories of your mom while teaching in Appleton in '68-70. She would walk to the school and bring us snacks for recess.
This left a lasting impression. She was a wonderful lady. Our condolences.

Fond memories of your mother from my time at the Appleton school in '68-70. She used to walk to the school and bring us snacks for recess-always healthy ones. I have thought of these acts of kindness often . She was a wonderful lady and I am sure you all have many great memories of her. Our condolences.

To the Freake family. I am so sorry to hear of your Moms passing. She was such a beautiful lady. I always enjoyed our little chats whenever I seen her. I was hoping to get out for the visitations today but unfortunately the weather is not cooperating.
May she Rest In Peace and May all your beautiful memories of her see you through this sad time.
God Bless
Dorothy Woodd and family (Jennifer, Katherine and Andrew)
