  1. Dear Nita and Family, We just returned from a Hawaiian trip to learn of your Mom's passing–our deepest sympathy. We loved Irene, she was a wonderful person who always had a smile and warm hug for everyone. We will miss exchanging Christmas cards and telephone calls with her. She was a very special person, a good neighbor, and dear friend to our family–she will be greatly missed! May all your wonderful memories of her through-out the years, bring you comfort. Love Bob and Paulena Coughenour

  2. It’s no secret, how much my Grandma means to me;
    And today she’s turning 93!

    She’s as beautiful today as she was in her youth;
    Lovely and smart…. That’s the truth.

    More delicate and fragile with each day that passes by;
    To say I’d be ok without her,
    Would be nothing but a lie.

    Sometimes I watch her as she stares at pictures past;
    while she wonders if God is really saving her for last.

    Four Generations so far, have grown from her seeds,
    With roots intertwined from Maggards and Reeds

    It was planted upon a hill of good deeds,
    Where she tended to all of its wants and its needs.

    The limbs on that tree have branched out
    from East to West;
    From Missouri all the way to California,
    Putting distance to the test.

    Her Legacy will carry on for Generations to come,
    Bearing world class fruit, rated 2nd to none.

    Thank You, Grandma for everything you have
    given to your Family.
    You are an amazing person and I’m blessed to be your Granddaughter.

    Happy Birthday!
    Love, Lisa
