God called home a wonderful lady! She was always so positive, happy, polite, and caring during her stay here on earth. She made so many friends during her years at Quick-Trip and throughout her life in La Crescent. Her family was her highest priority in life. They were blessed to have her as a Mom, and her friends admired her, too. Thus, her legacy will continue on and positively impact those who knew her. Prayers and peace to all of you.

Lonie so many great memories of coming down to the farm. In particular, the girls hanging out in the upstairs bedroom! I don’t remember a time when you didn’t have a smile on your face. I will always cherish our visit a few years ago. You will certainly be missed!

I didn't know Lonie well. However, on the occasions I stopped in with her daughter, Robin, she was always very kind and welcoming. Robin - Mike & I send our deepest sympathy to you and your family on the loss of your Mom.

Sweet Cousin Lonie always had a twinkle in her eye and a smile upon her lips. She will be missed by the many that knew and loved her, but will be forever in our hearts and memories. We were all so glad "The Cousins" were able to make it out to Las Vegas for Mom's (Donna) 80th birthday celebration. Such a good time was had by all. I've posted a couple of photos from that day as one of the happy memories shared. Lonie and Mom are with our other loved ones now and share a laugh, drink and a game of euchre. Love, hugs and prayers to Lonie's entire family. Wendie (Erickson) & Rick Mosca (I thought this had gone through with the photos earlier...)
