Condolences

Condolence From: Phil and Dorothy Nothe
Condolence: Bernie and Becky and family. Phil and myself want to share our condolence on the loss of your mother. She was known among others for the love for her family, and kindness toward others. May you hold onto your memories close. Because she will always be in your heart. She is with us no longer on earth, god has gained a special angel. She will always be watching over all of your family. God bless you, and you and your family are in our prayers.

Condolence: Stankewicz Family...please know that ALL of my prayers are with you! Your mom was one of my Faith Heroes!! She kept me in prayer throughout my Formation Journey. She also made a jacket for me to keep me warm in the winter. She was one of the first patients that I ever cared for, and taught me SOOO much as a nurse and a person. I will miss her VERY much. Many prayers for all of you and for her entry to Heaven.

Condolence: My fondest memories of Coldwater includes the "icon" of "Phyllis Stankewicz" - she always seemed liked she was making homemade cookies. I enjoyed how she saved the Coldwater Daily news and knew our parents would always go home with a brown grocery bag of them. And, I remember that big back yard or maybe it just appeared "huge" as a child. One thing I will alway cherish was Phyllis and her kindness and what a good friend she was to mom and dad. She will be greatly missed. Thinking and sending our prayers to the whole family!!! (Together again, makes me smile to think what kind of party those parents of ours are having!!) 💕

Condolence: Dearest Family,
I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved Mother. She gave the neighborhood her love, kindness and generosity to everyone. I can still remember as a child going over to your house and smelling that newly baked bread and I always got a taste before I went home. She never turned me down :).
I will be forever grateful for the friendship and laughter she gave my Father for all those years after Mom died. Watching the Wheel of Fortune together gave Dad many hours of fun and friendship and was often the highlight of his day.
As my Sister Debbie said...Phyllis was the hub of the neighborhood and she will always be remembered and cherished for her sense of humor and kindness. She will be very missed in this lifetime.

Condolence From: Debbie(Atkins)Rogers
Condolence: Dear family,
I was so sorry to learn of the loss of your sweet mother. You were so blessed to have her in your lives for so many years. Your family home was the hub of the neighborhood and she welcomed us in as her own kids. I never remember being told "not today" when asked if you all could play. And, usually, there were homemade cookies for us as well. Or if I was REALLY lucky, popcorn to shell. She made your home a 'safe place' where all were welcome.
Don and I are out of town but are sending our thoughts and prayers to you all.
Love, Debbie
