I feel so blessed to have been able to meet you last spring when I traveled to Iowa with Martha Moore and Judy. I know that you have always been an inspiration to your family and that they will always hold your memory in their hearts. Praise God that you are in your "real home" and that you are whole again.
Much love to all the family,
Leslie Main

Sorry to hear of the passing of such a wonderful lady. We had the blessing to meet her several years ago and spend time with her. She was a beautiful person, and I'm sure she will be missed by her family.

Joe, Jana, and the rest of the Stuchel family--I'm so sorry that your mother passed away. Due to the weather and my job, I won't be at the visitation or the funeral, but I will be thinking of you. Mom shared one of her memories of your mother--while your mother was in Albia and still able to attend daily Mass, she would always seek Mom out to give her a personal greeting. That meant a lot to Mom.

My sympathy to the entire family... My second family growing up on East Benton. Joe, my very best friend in my heart forever, you know I am always with you, and you with me. Now our parents are back together & your Dad is cracking yet another joke! I'm sure it didn't take long before your Mom said "oh Donald!!". The Stuchels & Yarkoskys had great parents!! Love to all of you; and peace to your Mom.
