I am sad for your loss. I always enjoyed visiting with Marlys when I brought her communion.
I was sorry to hear of Marlys death. Mildred was a dear friend and babysitter and our children loved having her, and sometimes Elene would sit with them. They still talk about them. We sold our home in Garwin 2 years ago and moved to Marshalltown but still miss our friends in Garwin. Marlys was a good friend and we will miss her.
It's not 30 years it's soon to be 40 years. Correction
I got to know Marlys by having Saturday morning coffee with she and a dozen other Gladbrook ladies. We all looked forward to having coffee and catching up with weekly news. She always had a smile and enjoyed life. We're sill having weekly coffee and soon to be 30 years. Sympathy to all Maryls' family.
Our Family sends condolences .
