Condolence: Lisa's grandmother always called me "Sondra" and my grandmother always called her "Liza". LaRue was always smiling and wanting to know the "goss". Wishing Connie and Lisa and the rest of the family a long life!

Condolence: I lost "my gram" a few days ago. She was a huge part of my life for more than 50 years. My heart is sad. My soul is empty and overjoyed at the same time...with countless memories!

A few priceless memories with my gram: walking hand-in-hand as a little girl up & down Cherry Lane just because.... searching the cemetary up the hill looking for coins in gutters, grass & around curbs. Whatever money we found we would run to the penny candy store for Swedish fish. I came to realize later..... that my gram sometimes dropped coins for me to "find". She always made me feel lucky!!! Sitting in her garden playing with my brothers whilst my gram was sunning herself with homemade circles covering both eyes that she cut from an old sheet. The daily baking; home made bread, sticky rolls, custard, pies etc.. not just for us but for others as well.

I am really lucky to say this; I saw my grandmother pretty much every day of my young life until I graduated from University. Every single day she always made me feel loved, wanted & cared for. Gram always was "doing". The woman never stopped!

If you knew her and want to write a memory....

Condolence: Connie and Billy, sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I talked with Rudy many many times thru the years when she would visit my grandparents Runkles home. She was a great person.

Condolence: I had 51 years with this strong, funny, kind, humble, hardworking person that I am proud to call my "gram". The memories, laughs, rides we took, the walks, talks on the phone & all our gossy moments etc.. You will forever be in my heart. I love you so very much. You will be missed Gram but know you will be thought of daily. When it is my time, I hope you, Aunt Irene & Pap will be at the gates waiting for me. I love you Gram. Your first grand daughter Lisa Josefik.
