Messages of Condolence
The end of an era of sisters. What fantastic memories I have a great memory of the House (yours) we used to play in as kids, Aunt Joe lived upstairs and there was a big (at least it seemed then) garage in the back. Aunt Terri was the most understanding of all of the aunts from my perspective. In fact I think she is the only one who did not scold or threaten me with telling my father about something or other. It could have been that she was used to certain behaviors with Cousin Donny and Kenny…..LOL. A wonderful person who will always be remembered. Condolences to Don, Ken the grand and great grandchildren.
So sorry to hear of Terry’s passing. She was such a good friend at the Y swimming . We all loved and respected her .
Sincere condolences on your loss of Gram Wesner. Gram was a Blessing to the Turk family. She will be remembered as always looking beautiful, smiling and showing total love of her family. She will be missed and that alone says a lot.

Frances Wesner was a true LADY in every sense of the word! I saw her weekly as I finished my hour in St. John Bosco’s chapel at noon and she came in for her time in prayer. While we never chatted in the chapel, our smiles and waves formed a bond of sorts.
I often saw Frances at Mass, depending on what Mass we attended. Whether at Mass on the weekend for the daily chapel visits on Thursday, Frances was always impeccably dressed and groomed. Her handicap and cane never deterred her from the effort it took to put herself so beautifully together every day. I always admired her and wished I could be as lovely and well-groomed.
I knew something was wrong when she no longer was coming in to the chapel at noon. I did send her a card a while ago to let her know that she was missed, and identified myself as the person from the chapel. My hope is that she didn’t have a difficult time before she passed.
The picture in the PD is the Frances we all knew from St. John Bosco. However, I was blown away when I read that this lovely lady who drove herself in her own car to chapel was 96, NINETY-SIX, years old! WOW! What a very special LADY she was, and I’m so glad I got to see her on a regular basis.
Not many of us will achieve the length of life in the very best way that Frances did, and her family certainly knows that better than I do. I want to extend my sympathy to all of the family, but I also want them to know that they weren’t the only people who admired this very special woman.
Terry was a very special lady. She was gracious, kind and loving
and in return loved dearly.
I never see a lamb cake without thinking of Terry. I was lucky
enough to find a canned chicken and dumpling whose dumplings
are just like Terry’s. I know they sank, but I loved them.
And I know Terry is in Heaven catching up with her sisters, who
she missed so much.
I want to extend my sympathy to Terry’s family because I know
they will miss this great lady very much, but will hold dear many
loving memories of her.
Terry is a very precious person who will always be held
in our hearts.
