My heart is so heavy to hear of Bridges passing. She was so much fun to work with at 3m. I’d stop by her house if she was outside when I was on my walks. She was a joy to know. May You Rest in Peace.

We will definitely miss her on our bowling team. She was a good bowler…so loyal and fun.
Such a great friend, too.

Rest in peace Bridget. Gone to soon my friend. I will miss meeting up for breakfast, and your advice when I would call just to talk. Until we meet again!
Cara (Bursch Travel) says
I’m so saddened to hear of Bridget’s passing. I first met her when she was needing some travel help for a wedding in Reno. Many trips later and just a few short months ago, she took one of her bucket list trips and everytime we would meet she would say she had always wanted to go to this place and it was so important for her. I’m grateful she had the opportunity to travel. I will miss talking with her. She was always so kind. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends.

Dear old friends, Brad, Brenda, and Beth~ I am so saddened to read of Bridget’s death. It was actually a shock to read her name in the obituaries. She’s just way too young, but then death doesn’t seem to distinguish young and old when taking loved ones from us. You are all in my thoughts and prayers, and in my heart as the next days, weeks, and months progress without her. May the Lord give you peace and comfort through all your precious memories~ Love, Jo (Moldestad) Reck

Mike Buske says
I sat next to Bridget the night we graduated from Hutchinson High School in 1980. We also took drivers education behind the wheel together. You were kind enough to have “liked” my retirement posting on Facebook a few years ago. I am so sorry for your passing away at such a young age. My condolences to your family and friends. It is important that we remember those who have been part of our lives. I will remember you, Bridget !
Rest in Peace in Heaven.

I was so heartbroken to hear about Bridget. My heart goes out to your entire family! Bridget and I were close friends in high school. I have been playing all the stories and times we shared together over and over in mind the past few days. We spent many late night sleep overs at each others house. We shared a hall locker several years in high school together . We laughed hysterically at times, cried together and even got into a little trouble with our parents at times. I will forever remember your contagious laugh and love for life. Love you girl! God Bless you and your family!
Mary Gonzales says
