Aurella was such a gracious lady. I have very fond memories of her visiting with us @ Aunt Olga's home. My mother was a first cousin of Aurella's and she felt more like sisters than cousins. Aurella was maid of honor at my parent's wedding.
My sympathies to all of Aurella's family.

Ninety five years was a wonderful life. Her mother was the twin sister of my paternal grandmother, Clara Lohmeyer Sasse Werth Albers. That would make her my father's first cousin (Herbert Albers).

Gilbert and Aurella lived across the road from us when we were pretty young. My folks, Gilbert and Ethel Gierhan, so enjoyed them as neighbors and friends. On one occasion, Mom, Dad, and I stayed with them in their beautiful home in Seward when I played in a music competition at Concordia. I remember your mother as a very intelligent woman in addition to being incredibly kind and thoughtful. They are probably all busy catching up in Heaven now.
