So sorry to hear Maryellen had died. She played an such important part in her family's lives. My deepest sympathy to Cliff and all the family. She and Cliff were our dearest friends at the trailer court at Eureka College (era 1946-1950). Didn't know them then, but they were married on my 22nd birthday. Monk and I were married on October 5th. We all started our married lives together. GI's were allowed to live in the trailer court. There were 4 families of us who owned our own trailers and became lifetime friends. Cliff and Monk were buddies as they did odd jobs for the college, such as cleaning the walks of snow and so forth. Cliff named our little son, "Bobby-Hook-It-On". He had watched farming operations and wanted everything hooked on to his little tractor. Maryellen was so good at corresponding and they always came to our events for many, many years. Also want to mention Maryellen shared her parents with us. They were our parents while at Eureka and treated us so kindly. We used their telephone (long before cell phones) to call on and they received messages for us.This was one of many things they did for us. They were always included in our get-togethers. We had lots of precious memories and at 93, they are so treasured. Thinking of all of you who she loved so very much. Love and prayers, Dorothy White PS Thank you Mary Miller for looking me up and catching me up.

To a special Aunt that meant a lot to me, although I lived in California I never forgot how much fun we all had when we got together. What a celebration it was to see everyone on those occasions. Love you all.
