To the best mom ever, you have always been there for me. I couldn’t have asked  for a better mom and would never want to. You have the smile personality of an angel. The heart of gold. You always know the right things to say and do. You  teach me right from wrong always have always will. We have and always will have a bond that will never be broken. You have always guided me through the rough times and even when I thought I couldn’t make it, you pulled me through. You made sure that I could do it. You taught me that even when times get ruff, I can still make it through, keep striving and be myself. And no matter what I know that you will always be there for me, to do the right things, make the right decisions, and guide me on the right path. You’re my best friend, my mentor, and my sidekick, and MOST IMPORTANTLY my mom. I will ALWAYS and FOREVER love and miss you!!!!!!!!!♥♥♥ love ALWAYS AND FOREVER you’re daughter Terri♥love you more than words can say ALWAYS have and ALWAYS will!!!!!!!♥♥XOXOXO

Im so glad I got to spend every day with you since you left the hospital back in July, the amount of memories we have had since then are amazing, like you sitting and singing Patsy Cline at midnight, just us talking about everything, painting your nails, doing your hair, taking pictures, spending hours with you in the Hospital, you coming out to Dylans birthday, laughing and having a good time, etc. Hereing your laugh just warmed my heart. That morning when Barb and I watched you take your last breath was heartbreaking!! I wish I could bring you back, I would do anything 🙁 But I know your in a better place now and out of pain and done suffering, I know your going nuts up there watching everyone be upset because your gone. You were always so worried about everyone but you. Even though we didnt get to spend years together, I know you loved me and I sure loved you! <3 I miss you so so so much 🙁 Its never gonna be the same without you here. But we still have Porky in good hands haha! Im gonna miss saying goodnight to eachother and saying I love you everynight the most though 🙁 Your always and forever in my heart Gram. I will never forget you!

I was so sorry to see Pat’s obituary.  She was a wonderful person who always had a smile on her face.
Take comfort in the fact she is finally reunited with her loving husband.  I am sure they are both watching
over their precious family.
I was blessed to have known her.

To Pat Zankl’s family. Just saw Pat’s obituary. So sorry for your loss. I am June Bitts-Noecker. Gordie & Ivon’s daughter. I remember your parents at my dad’s retirement party. We had a great time. Dad passed January 21, 2009 and mom passed January 25, 2013. Again, Mike and I are so sorry for your loss. As you know from the loss of your dad, time does help, but we always have their memories. Sincerely, June & Michael Noecker
