LANA: SORRY FOR THE PASING OF YOUR MOTHER!
May she find Peace and Grace in GOD’S presence.
Love and Hugs to you
Sandi ( Howard) HOOVER. Lance Zimmerman also
thinking of you and wishing you peace…
Butch and Lana, Sorry to hear that your mom passed. She lived a long life and it sounds like she enjoyed all the things she did. The comment on Croghan School made me think back on the time I spend there. I am amazed I survived some of the things we did there. Best regards to all of the family. I still remember that last time I talked to your dad. He was at Whirlpool one day that I walked through the HR department.
Butch, so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. My condolences to you and your family.
Oh do I remember the hair cuts.
My mother (Jane) use to tell her she should have been a barber, but in those days women cutting hair other than in a beauty salon was out of the question.
I also can remember summer evenings mom would walk down to the house and they would talk till the sun set.
In later years I would always ask Sandy how she was…
Lana Butch and Dennis she will be missed.
Bonnie & Bruce Shank
Lana , Butch and Denny; you have our sympathy in the loss of your mother; she lived a long productive life and will be missed by all who knew her! Keep her memories alive! We would be at the funeral but we are in Florida for the winter!
Dear family and friends, please accept my deepest condolences. May God’s promises found at Acts 24:15 and Psalms 37:29 bring you comfort during this difficult time.

Betty was the friendliest and kindest trainer I had when I worked at Union Carbide. She made my entry into factory life much easier than it could have been and I learned a lot from her. I especially liked her humor and her zest. May you all find comfort, strength, and peace in the days to come, knowing she is in paradise now. I am sorry for your loss.
Lana, Butch, Dennis and family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you all
I’m so sorry about your mom
