Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Sheila, Sorry to read of Phil’s death. I remember some of those happy days when the Bell and Stohl Familys had those “get togethers”. Ray Gibbs.

  2. I think about you guys quite a bit and especially your mother who enriched my live so much, including providing us with her fudge.

  3. Such a wonderful lady! She taught us all so much..We loved having her in the office until the age of 92..It was so hard to say good bye when she decided she had to retire at the age of 92..We had many great times and laughs with Phyllis..She was one of a kind..A Very Special Lady! We will never forget her..

  4. Shannon, While I never met your Mother, I felt like I got to know her through your stories and your life. She must have been a remarkable woman as she has and will live on in your life. I consider it my privilege to have known her through you. God Bless you and may God be with you and comfort as you go through this time of loss.

  5. Tony, Sheila, Shannon & Kristin- I was so sad to read of your mom’s passing-and on my birthday. We wrote each other every Christmas and reminded each other of the very old days when she was my baby sitter after school! I will never forget all of the great forts we built under the card table; the boxer you had; Jeffie; the great food and fudge that your Mom could whip up. I will miss her dearly. My love to you all.
