One Condolence for “FRIEDA GEHRING”

  1. Vern & Vivienne Pancoast says:

    We are away on our annual winter holiday and have just learned of your mother’s passing. Our heartfelt condolences to you all.

    I, Viv, will always remember being brand new to the Bowell community, one day your mother dropping in to introduce herself with a fancily decorated cake that she had done herself. I was so impressed and inspired that I took a cake decorating course and for years afterwards as our children grew up, making their birthday cakes.

    Your mom was always so friendly and she made everyone feel at ease with her quiet, reassuring demeanour. Memories such as this will keep your mom in your hearts and ours as well.

    Sincerely, Vern & Vivienne
