  1. I have no way to, put into words how I feel about the loss of Grandma. Both she and Grandpa had a great influence on the person I am today. A lot of bumps and bruises but the good qualities help to surface and instill the family awareness around me shaping my way through life. I’m great-full for the time spent as I recovered and being trapped by COVID-19. She never judged me and my calmness with old stories of life in general and possibilities of the future. I always tried to make sure when I and any grandkids talk and called, that she not only made our day but smiles on our faces. I’ll have a peaceful thought of them every day in every morning over a cup of coffee. You’re in my thoughts and prayers, love Tommy

    I love you grandma gg, I will never forget our talks and I will never forget the summers I came to visit. I will never forget when we made spaghetti or baked cookies together. Give my love to great-grandpa too, love your great-granddaughter, Deanna

  3. I was a classmate of Connie’s and have fond memories of Barbara and the Springstubbe family growing up on 28 Mile Road in Washington, Michigan. Barbara was a friendly and generous soul and I have vivid memories of her treating us to homemade hot chocolate (with a marshmallow on top!) after a day of sledding and skating on Otto’s pond. Blessings to the family at this time.

  4. I love you grandma! Thank you for all of the summer adventures with Steph, life lessons, and of course our delicious picnic lunches!

  5. I will always cherish the memories we have made throughout the years. I will hold onto the memories of us doing puzzles together during the winter. I will remember how you taught me how to be a better cook, and us being adventurous with our recipes. I will forever love and miss you. I know you went to a good place and are being comforted by family. I also know that you will be forever watching from above on our family; trying to guide us through our hard times as well as good times. This is not goodbye, but a see you later = ).
