To Liz, Ellen, and Ben,
I just wanted to send a note to all of you on your mom's passing. She was a sweet lady, and I have fond memories of when my sister Judy and I would come to your house to play. We always had a good time there and your mom was part of that - I remember her being really funny! Prayers, hugs, and kisses to all of you and your families.
Love,
Kathy Lanum Williams

Marlene and I were roommates our freshmen year at Ball State an interesting combination of a girl from the city and a girl from the country. It was a good year and I loved her parents visits to campus. They were so kind and fun. We pledged ASA together and enjoyed the activiities in sorority. Clyde was a fraternity borhter of Gordon, my husband, I believe that we were the first two couples to have the fraternity sing in front of Lucina Hall. Marlene's good humor and pleasant demeaner is a wonderful memory.

My sister, brother and I all had the privilege of having Mrs. Colvin as our 2nd grade teacher at Grissom. I have such wonderful memories of her and I'm so happy I had the opportunity to have her for a teacher. She was truly a remarkable lady. I'm so sorry to learn of her passing and am praying for her family and loved ones!

What a lady. She was the best Aunt a girl could have. She and Uncle Clyde made an amazing seem. I think she may have been the boss. One of the kindest sweetest funniest ladies in my life. I feel so fortunate to call her Aunite M.

Mary Harry on May 8, 2018

We will say though, that our hearts go out to you. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
In God's Love,
