Bill took care of his Mother’s dental health and Robert fixed every ding and car problem she ever had. Robert also lovingly cared for his Mother the last few years of her life. Frank and Madeline were married for 62 years. She was lovingly known as “Tootsie” by all who loved her, a name given to her by her son, Bill. She was a wonderful, loving woman who was treasured by her many loved ones. She especially loved her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and prayed for all her loved ones, daily.
