Jan, my sincere condolences. I didn’t know your mom well, but she must’ve been a great mom because you turned out so well. I have no doubt she was very proud of you. My thoughts and prayers are with you. It’s almost twenty years since I lost my mom. It never feels normal not to be able to call her. At least not the first twenty years, anyway. Take care of yourself.

Dear Family of Iola – I am so very sorry for your loss. I met Iola years ago when I facilitated the Senior Citizens Program at Plainwell Community Schools. I so enjoyed our visits and Iola traveled with our group on many one-day trips. She was a beautiful lady inside and out and I know she will be missed by many, especially her children and their families. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

I’m so sorry to hear the passing of your Mom. Your Mom always had a smile for me when I would see her , and she always looked like a million bucks even when she went to Repz Gym . I can still see her walking on the treadmill looking like she just came from the beauty parlor. RIP Iola and my thoughts and prayers are with the Weyrick family

Best step Mom ever! My memories- hair perfect with make up and a coordinated outfit/jewlery. Only her kindness and thoughtfulness surpassed her beauty. She helped me be connected to family. May the many memories shared by her children console them. Rest in peace dear lady, you are missed!

Thinking of watching your Mom make peanut butter and marshmallow sandwiches for your school lunches. Braiding Sue’s hair. She loved you all and that is so very special to remember. Sending you all my thoughts of healing hearts.
