  12. Sara Telander for Carolyn Wicklund…I know they were close friends through Church, about a month before I learned of her passing I found a Birthday card made out to Lois still sealed in my Grandma’s things from when we moved her over from assisted living to nursing care at St. Clare’s… grandma’s handwriting shaky but still hers…now she’s no longer writing and not sure what telling her about Lois would do depending on the day with her advanced dementia. I know from church Lois was faithful, devoted, kind and always had smiles for us, she radiated warmth and caring. I hope you all find comfort and peace in memories shared. Much love, Mary (Wicklund) Clasen, Sara (Walberg) Telander and Carolyn.
