Wow, Jeannie, a big garage sale Friday and Saturday on Carmen Avenue. Always had great fun going around town following your list and looking at all the stuff. Love and miss you. Bob and Lisa

Caleb Rahmer

Rest in peace, the best grandma a kid could ask for. I will forever cherish the memories we were able to create with you. From 4th of July in Sheboygan Falls, to the many, many sleepovers Dylan, Zoey, Carter and I had on your living room floor; you always brought a level of comfort to my life when you were around. I love you so much, and I will see you again someday.

Rest in peace, Jeannie. We will always remember, miss, and love you. Bob and Lisa I will think of you whenever I read a Jack Reacher novel, go to a garage sale, watch Twilight Zone and Them, and avoid a horror movie.
