Laurie, I am so sorry about your Mom. A lot of good memories about you and your family (dancing in phy-ed, the Drug Store, the Hallmark Store). Hope you are well otherwise.

To the Wedin families: So sorry for your loss. We were your neighbors across the alley when you lived in the horseshoe. May the great memories that you made and shared carry you through this most difficult time.

May all the lifelong memories surround you and give you comfort.
When I think of Jeanine Wedin I always have a smile on my face.
I loved your Mom’s wonderful smile, her sense of humor and especially her laugh.
Years ago the Bridge Club would meet once a month on a rotating schedule. It was fun helping my Mom with the hostess duties where I could hear the ladies making their bids and telling jokes, and laughing.
Don’t get me wrong they played serious Bridge, but had this wonderful spirit of friendship. I know they played for at least 25 years, starting when we were babies and living in the Horseshoe neighborhood.
What a Blessing to have her for so many years. She will be missed but will remain in your hearts forever.
