So sorry for your loss. Wene was such a kind lady and will certainly be missed by all. Her and Jerry's mom Margaret were friends and she talked about her.often. As Margaret and Clair have both passed on; and now Wene, we will only have memories to talk about. I remember the Moose bowling tournaments and the fun we all had. She made wonderful desserts for the bowling picnics every year. She has moved on and we will remember her fondly.
