Visitor Comments
To the Atherton Family - So sorry to hear about your mother. I have lots of memories of her and your family. From the time I was just a kid riding the school bus with some of you - and than working together with your Mom at the Presbyterian Church on several different things including my Mom and Dad's Anniversary party as well as Howard and My wedding and we also worked the Alumni Banquet a year or two together. She was a hard worker and a good friend. She was always there to lend a "helping hand" for so many different things at the Church. She will be missed by many. My prayers go out to all of you...Shirley (Jornlin) Hoffman
