I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Charlotte's passing. She was a wonderful lady and had such a great sense of humor. We all loved her very much and I will keep her family in my prayers.

I have known Chock for about 20 years, since we were neighbors. We spent a lot of time visiting each other's apartments and just talking for hours and watching TV. She had the best laugh! I remember how much she would talk about her family and her husband. My daughter and I loved hanging out with her and her beloved dog, Max! She was truly a one of a kind woman and she will be greatly missed!! Even though I moved away several years ago, when I was back in LeMars for a visit and had the chance I would go visit and we would pick right back up as if no time had passed. I am grateful that I had the pleasure of knowing her and being her friend for so many years!

To Chock's family, especially Mike, my heartfelt sympathies. I have many fond memories of Chock and Roland at softball games and especially my special friendship with her. She was a lovely, fun, full of life woman and I enjoyed time spent with her.
All my love, Kathy Zortman (Wanderscheid)
