Our beloved Mom was born in Monowi Nebraska, one of eight children in a farming family. She moved to Omaha after graduating from Lynch High School, where later she met dad. They married in 1943 and welcomed twelve children. She always glowed with pride at the mention of her kids, and never wavered from always being there for us all. The loss of two sons in childhood, and the eldest last year, made us all stronger as a family. Their Catholic faith was a source of strength to our parents. Mom enjoyed their lake home at Lake Waconda for many years. Her hobbies included sewing for her family, bowling, golf, and friends, but mostly she enjoyed family gatherings with her kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. We strive to follow her example of never saying a bad word about anybody. We love you Mom, and will miss you always. The family will receive friends Wednesday, August 19th from 5pm to 7pm, with VIGIL SERVICE at 7pm, all at the West Center Chapel. MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL Thursday, August 20th at 10am at St. Leo the Great Catholic Church. Interment, Calvary Cemetery. Memorials are suggested to St. Leo the Great Catholic Church, St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church, or a charity of your choice.
