I never knew Reta personally, but I know her daughter Constance (Connie), and her granddaughters Lesli , Nadine and Ronnie. I mostly knew Lesli and Nadine, and to them I want to send my deepest condolences at the loss of their grandmother. It sounds like Reta lived a long and full life, and I'm sure she will be missed by you and all of her family. May she rest in peace, and my thoughts and prayers are with you at this great time of sorrow.

February 4, 2020 - Well, you did it Gramma, you beat Great Grandad by two years! Maybe one day in Heaven, we can go to an auction, a long car ride, historical cemetery outing, early evening walk, plant flowers or rock hunting, My favourite memories as a kid are at the Cottage doing so many things, including eating orange yogurt in front of the tv watching Lawrence Welk. I admire you for being such an independent woman that could do so much on your own, but I am hoping that you find companionship, kindness, and love now in Heaven. I worked very hard all my life to make you proud of me and to bring you joy. May you find peace now with God. Luv always, N.
