Mom would often bring up Louise's name in casual conversation. My Mom was Mabel Sievers Jucht and just passed away on October 1 2009 at the age of 94 years. That era enjoyed many years and had a strength that gave the subsequent generations a model to admire. Our prayers and sympathy are with your family. I'm sure you will have many memories to cherish as you adjust to your loss.
In Sympathy,
Janell Beck
