Guestbook

Lillian was such a sweet person! She was my second cousin,, so I remember her parents , her siblings, and especially her sister Doris who was one of my sister Shirley Feldmeier's best friends. I live in WA state, so I have not seen her much in my adulthood. However, I spoke with her and exchanged text messages with her a month ago or so when she ordered the Shutterfly Nottmeier Wedding Photo book from Monroe County Genealogy Society's President, Jan Wenk. She was just as sweet as I always remembered her! Prayers for you Lollie and all of the family. Sharon (Nottmeier) Arnold

My family has so many great memories with Lil and her family. Memories from bicycle riding to Prairie Du Rocher, to Ste Genevieve for lunch and from our girls trying to dig their own swimming pool. She was a great neighbor since 1969. I will miss you.
