    I am sorry to read about your mothers passing. I have been researching the Thrift Family tree and was looking up your moms name when I found her obituary. If any of you would like to see the information I have been able to locate or would like to add to the tree please contact me.

  2. Anita, Lynn, Marge and everyone else in the family, we are sorry to hear of your mom’s passing, I can remember being in elementary school, and playing with Anita at her home, your mom was always so nice and polite and a very wonderful person. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.

  3. I have a lifetime of wonderful memories. Gwen was a 2nd mother during my childhood on Sunset Avenue. She had that beautiful sweet smile…right to the end. Rest with Jesus.

  4. I had the best MOM ever. Always on an even keel. I have a huge hole in my heart. Thank you to those who wrote in here. I miss you so much mom. Love you.

  5. Keeping you all close in prayer. I hope your memories are as wonderful as fine.
