    You will be missed by so many people that truly loved you. It has been wonderful knowing you Nola. I always looked forward to our many talks. The members of the KCJVC and their family enjoyed the many times that you were apart of our meetings and picnics. You were always ready to help when needed. Also, less we forget, the fun Friday night dinners at the VFW Post 4027 plus, the Fredericktown American Legion Post 500. Blessings to your family.

  • Sorry to hear I’ve lost another classmate. Always looked forward to seeing her at the alumni banquet as we usually were the few from the class of 1956 that showed.

  • So very sorry to hear another classmate is gone. Many years have gone by since I last saw anyone but I try to keep up with the Fredericktown news. My deepest sympathy to Nola’s family. Connie Bryan Hopkins

  • Dear Bob, Valerie and Family, and the VanHouten Family, We are saddened to learn of Nola’s passing. She will be missed by so many. There is a dear spirit heading up to Heaven where she and Marjorie will be able to walk all they want to again. She will once again be with the family that she adored. She was always such a strong supporter of the Squad and the Squad Auxiliary and we also enjoyed the times together at the American Legion activities. Please know that we are sending you our deepest sympathy and friendship. Sincerely, Susie and Dick Huggins/Fredericktown

  • Bob,
    All of us with The Exchange Club are sorry for your loss. In particular, I will always remember Nola’s presence at club and district events and conventions and the afghans she made for each of our children when they were born. I was delighted to have had the opportunity to share many memorable moments with you and Nola. She will be sadly missed, but never forgotten.
    Thom Collier and family

  • I was thinking along the same thoughts as Susie and Dick Huggins when they mentioned walking with Marjorie McMahon. The two of them covered many miles around our beautiful village of Fredericktown. I cannot even comprehend what beauty they are seeing in heaven.
