Mrs Schneider was my Cub Scout Den Mother over 50 years ago after I had gotten asked to leave other dens. I had Learning disabilities, and undiagnosed mental illnesses.  She was a Saint for putting up with me, and keeping my interest.  I am sure God gave her special blessings because of me. Thank you very much for the memories, and the patience and tolerance that has lasted all these years.

I am so sorry to hear about Martha.  Her picture is so beautiful.  I remember driving around to look at woods and creeks and Sunday dinners.  Always a lot of food and especially Archway cookies.  I think Helen usually brought those.  We had such a close family growing up.  I am thinking of all of her family right now.

Am so very sorry to read about Martha, what a treasure she was in my life. We recently moved to Byron and I wanted to go and visit but alas was not meant to be. Treasured the friendship I had with her and Gladys too while doing their hair for years. They were my Mom’s friends first from up the hill on Brick, you have my sympathy, she talked about you kids all the time and loved you so much. Prayers are with you all. I loved her too!
