Ione J. Shiffer (Knutson)

I was so sad to hear of the death of Mrs. Shiffer. I grew up two doors down, and have great memories of turning the handle on the home made ice cream maker in the Shiffer's driveway, tasting the home made wines from the basement, and swinging on the big swings at the top of the hill! I learned about gardening when I got to visit Mr. and Mrs. Shiffer. Mr. Shiffer took me to a father/son dinner when I was about 10, at St. Jacob's, after my parents divorced, and I will be eternally grateful. They were both kind and gentle and patient.
After 30 years practicing law in Columbus, I live with my wife Mandy in Long Beach, and intend to again practice law out here. My brother Dave is a teacher in Milwaukee, where he lives with his wife Paula and three children. Doug is a teacher in Springboro, and has two college age sons. One is studying engineering at Iowa State University!
Thinking of you all fondly,
Sincerely, Dick Termuhlen

Ione will be missed, but always remembered for her wonderful example of a happy, positive, & Christian life. She dedicated herself fully into all her endeavors, and was so very proud of her family. I knew her best as her choir director at St. Jacob's Church. She sang Alto, and also contributed many funny stories, which entertained the choir during practices. Ione, you are unforgettable!
