Lonnie dearly loved spending time with her family and friends in Kings Beach Lake Tahoe.

The family would like to thank Sutter North Hospice. We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to Prestige Assisted Living Facility in Marysville. The expert care they provided to our Mother was exceptional. They truly became our "extended family".
