5 Condolences for Derra Ann Meisenzahl

  • I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. May God be with you and your family always.

    Love Pattie

  • I can’t tell you how sorry I am at the loss of your loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister. Derra was a very loving and caring person. I had the honor of knowing her through the many years we worked together. No one could ask for a better friend than Derra. She was so excited when her grandson James was born. I know she couldn’t have been happier to share her remaining time in his company and I will be forever grateful that she was able to do so. I will always keep her and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Rest in peace, dear cousin. You will be remembered always.

  • What a beautiful tribute to Aunt Derra. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We wish we could be there to comfort you in person. We love you all so much.

  • Your wife, and mother, Derra Ann, will be in my thoughts and prayers. I am sorry for your loss.
