I loved working with Boots on the Luther Memorial Church design team. We also shared a table during coffee hour after church services. She will be missed by many. Praying for comfort and peace for the family and friends.

So very sad to see that Auntie Boots passed. We were so happy to get to see her a few days before she passed. She was always a real spitfire, and she kept her witty sense of humor, even though she was in so much pain! Our thoughts and prayers are with Patti and Bob and the rest of the family.

To Patty and other family members, We are sorry about the loss of your mom. Peace be with you and many happy memories. We loved Boots because she was so friendly and always had something funny to say. Her many visits to see my Mom (Mary) when she had Alzheimer's were so appreciated. Best wishes and love, Dan and Sue
