Mom, your were a GREAT woman, wife, mom, grandmother, and friend! Your legacy to us was to work hard, keep a good sense of humor, don't take yourself too seriously, take care of and love each other, and to trust in the Lord in all you do. We love you almost as much as you loved us.

Ione's family would like to thank the staff on the third floor at Appleton Medical Center and Theda Care at Home Hospice for making her last days comfortable and peaceful. You are AWESOME!
