My sympathies in the loss of your Mom. We discontinued the Post Bulletin so I just saw her obit in the Chatfield News while at the Care Center this afternoon. I'm sorry I missed the opportunity to attend her funeral. She was a great lady & Dad really enjoyed reconnecting with her & her siblings (his cousins) after returning to Chatfield in 1969. What a legacy she leaves behind -- so many grandchildren & great-grandchildren. Loved watching the video tribute. My Mom has been gone since June 2001. Dad would have been 98 on Tuesday, Sept 17th. He's been gone since Jan 2015. Miss them both. Prayers that you find comfort in your memories of happier times. Sincerely, Amy (Nichols) Zincke
Cleo was an outstanding employee of Camera Art, she was always willing to help in any area that we needed help and did her job well!
