Dave, Kathy and Karen, I am very sorry for the loss of your mom. She will be missed in the neighborhood. She was one of the last true originals of our neighborhood and a very good neighbor. I will miss seeing her sit on her front porch and enjoy the outside with her cat. She always had a smile and a wave for all.

As a classmate of Margaret (1948), I remember Margaret Kerr Coleman as one of the leaders of  the class.  She was always friendly and accepting of new friends.  Margaret lived in "town" and I lived in the country when I attended Lewistown Community High School during my freshman and sophomore years.  Sincere condolences to her family at this difficult time.
From: MeganMar 20 2018 9:45AM
I am so sorry for your loss.  May the words of our loving heavenly Father bring your family comfort and strength during this most difficult time as He promises to bring our loved ones back to life in a perfect world where there will be no more suffering or death (John 5:28-29 & Revelation 21:4).
