Cindy & Family Not sure if you will remember from Speedway High School and JCPenney but I worked at JCPenny during high school and college and your mom was always so nice and helpful. Always had a smile. Sorry for the loss and condolences to the family. Vicki Rogers Givens

So loved your mom, Cindy and Jim! What a precious friend she was to us. We are on the SAM committee at ZUMC with Bob Morganroth and Pat for over 25 years. We had so many fun times with them on trips with our seniors and some trips to check out programs for our seniors. Bob and Pat were so passionate about maintaining a functional SAM group; even helping other Churches begin their own groups. I smile when I remember how Pat always wanted to use linen tablecloths for our senior luncheons. And she took them all home each time to give them a good cleaning for next time. How many times did she use her Penny’s discount to buy white cloths as well green ones for our Christmas dinner around the Christmas tree. Hmm, about 20+? We will miss her laughter as she sprinkled her love around to all of us.

Cindy and Jim, I read in the paper today about your mom. I am so sorry. She was a wonderful lady, and we had so much fun working at Penneys and later at Speedway Schools. She was such a support and encouragement to me. I will keep you and your families in my prayers. I know you will all miss her! 💗
