To all of the Ansleys family I’m so sorry to hear the news of your mom passing. I always had a wonderful time at your home and especially loved your mom’s chocolate cookies. She was a very sweet and kind lady. Hope you are all doing well. Patrick Bradner

My dear friends, William, Martha, Dorothy, Sandra, Hudson and mom and i were so sad to hear about your mom's passing. whenever i think of my childhood it includes all of you and the many meals i shared at your table. How kind of your mom and dad to embrace me as part of your family--and how can i count all the things i learned from all of you--computers in the 70's! badminton, swimming, cooking, craft making, and of course horses horses horses--dear Paiute. I remember rainy days cleaning tack for hours in that wonderful club house your father built. Of course your kind mother made that all happen. I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to all of you for making that childhood time so magical. You all must have such grief to lose her. My deepest condolences to you all and know that my mom and i talk of you all often and of our adventures between Iron Mountain rd and Waywayanda road. I can see the trees and the trails in the woods now. Much love to all and so glad to see the many grandchildren names. Melissa and Suzy

Dorothy and Family- I only met you mothrrba few times. The first time I met her was when were in college, Dorothy, and your mother invited me to join you, your sister Martha and her to dinner- st a restaurant! Off campus!! That was a big deal! I was touched by how welcome I felt! From then on, plus the many stories you always told, I knew your mother was a warm, giving and loving person. I know she will be deeply missed, and gratefully remembered. Please know we are thinking of you and your family with sympathy and love. -Craig and Nancy
