    Joyce, Laura, Elaine, Irene, Glenn As I think back through the years and remember your mother,one word comes to mind. That word is "Home" Fannie for me was the epitome of that word. Whether it was baking porcupines in the kitchen or the home baked goods in the camper out back. Your home was always full of people, good smells and warmth. Fannie always made me feel welcome even if the house was full there was always room for one more. I will also remember how when she smiled her entire face would smile and you could not help but return the favor. It has been a privilege to know your Mother and experience the true feeling of home. I love you all, Jamie

    Our hearts are saddened to learn of Fannie's death. She was so dearly loved by us as well as her church family. I could always rely on Fannie to answer any question I had about the Bible. I know that she is now with her Lord still watching over us all. Our sincere blessing to the family and know that the Lord is holding you all in his hands as he takes Fannie into his fold.
