Dear Rick and family,
We send our deepest sympathy for the loss of your Mother. She was blessed to have such devoted sons. I did not know her personally but always enjoyed seeing her and your Father together out shopping and such. She had such beautiful hair.
Friends, Evert and Sandra White
So sorry for your loss. I worked with Ione at Heinz. I also know most of her sons. She always had a great big smile and was always ready to talk about her boys. To the family I wish you peace with this. She will be surely missed.
I worked with iona for years. She was always smiling and willing to lend a helping hand. Prayers for the Lane family
Family of Iona, she was on our bowling team for a few years back in the mid 70's, which we took 1st. place several times. She always made us laugh and remember--no body who had lessons ever misses the 5 pin. It is with sadness to hear of her passing, but her faith allows us to know where she is. Our family sends our condolences and prayers that you all hold onto those wonderful memories.
