I am sad to hear the passing of Reberta. My condolences to her family. I worked with her for a few years in the school system and often saw her during the summers at Mi-Te- Jo campground. She will be missed.💔

I can't believe that our cousin pretty Bobette is gone. Our family loved her so very much. Didn't even know that she was ill. I am so very, very sorry. My sincere condolences to her friends and family.
With love, Diane Marie (White) Alexander
