  1. Am a cousin of your Mother. I met one of you at my parent’s home in Sandpoint in the 70’s. I really got to enjoy knowing your Mom in 1959 ( I was 12 almost 13) when she and your Grandfather Lew came to Idaho to visit my family. I always exchanged Christmas cards with your Mom and had wondered if she had been ill when I never received one this year. I couldn’t believe the clarity of her newsy cards. She was one unbelieveable lady who I know my siblings and I will really miss. Maybe you remember them–Jean and Lewie Mace, Don Deubel and Bob Deubel. I don’t have your email or address but hopefully you can email me. I have printed out the above obituary. Blessings to all of you. Linda
