2 Condolences for Dorothy M. Schlickenmaier

  • HI Kathy and Jackie, I lived next door to your parents in Binns. I remember you babysitting for us Cunningham children. That was fun.
    But as a newly married, very young mother, I moved back into the house and was their neighbor before they moved away. Now that I look back, I think that your parents did not understand us and our silliness. But both your mother and father were kind to us. Your father always had some time to listen to my husband’s problems and offer some guidance. And your mother was always excited to see the kids and admire a new baby. It was a stressful time and I am so grateful for their patience and caring.
    Wasn’t the dog named Prince?
    I am so sorry for your loss, your mother was a sweet person.
    Kathy Cunningham

  • Dear Kathy, Phil and Family,
    Losing a parent is very difficult and we hope it helps to know we are thinking of you. Cherish all the good memories as you celebrate your mother’s life. With deepest sympathy, Janet and Bob Ackerson
