My mother lost her battle with pancreatic cancer today, September 8, 2010. She had an amazing spirit, and taught all of her six children, twenty grandchildren, and several "greats" a lot about living. We will truly miss her. Her obituary has been posted at the online version of the Sandusky Register. Thank you everyone for your kind words and expressions of sympathy!

Oh, Dorene, I'm so sorry for you and the rest of her family. She was quite beautiful and it sounds like she had a beautiful spirit as well. I'll include you in my prayers.

Thank you so much for taking time to think of our family at this time. The Hospice physician said he had never seen anyone with a will as strong as Mom's. She fought the good fight to the very end!

Dorene you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers tonite. It has been a tough summer for Moms - right now I need both hands to count the number of genealogy folk who've lost theirs this summer.

Everyone has been so amazing through the past difficult few days. My mom really did instill in me a love of family, and I am so thankful for that! She didn't quite understand "genea-blogging," but she liked reading the posts :)
