  1. Dear Cheryl and Bob, I just read your mother’s Obituary online. I am retired and living in Springfield, Illinois. Married (Noel),with two children, Greta and Seth. They also live out here in neighboring communities near Springfield. We have been blessed with four grandchildren, two each to both kids. Henry and Emma to Tim and Greta and Otto and Harlow to Seth and Maddy. You had a wonderful Father and Mother who we truly loved and respected. I know my folks were very fond of both of them. God Bless you both. -Wayne
