My sincere condolences 🙏. It's heart breaking to loose our parents. Remember the beautiful memories it helps. Rest in peace Mrs. Schmuck.

~ Susan Kangas (Wilkins)

I am so sorry to hear of your mom's (grandma's) passing ... my dad always enjoyed his chats with both your parents when he toddled down the street on his daily walks. Your mom was always gracious and welcoming to me as kid and whenever our paths crossed in later years - she was truly a lovely person. I'm sure your hearts are aching right now ... but know she is at peace and will no doubt check in on you from time to time - mom's have a way of doing that.

I truly understand what you are feeling. Treasure the good memories and share your stories of your mom and dad. Eleanor was a wonderful person who enjoyed her walks and talking with the neighbours.

~ Jane Wilkins

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you grieve the loss of Eleanor. Eleanor was a cherished friend of ours for many years. We will miss her a great deal. We enjoyed all our visits over the years and her stories she shared of her family clearly showed how much she loved each of you and how proud she was of her family.

~ Liz and Mike Koning
