Memories Timeline


  1. Today we learn of the death of Grace. Please accept our genuine sympathy. Each Christmas we heard from Grace. This past Christmas she noted her new address. Paul Dugal and my Mother were cousins. My Mother was Berniece Dugal McCreary. I will copy the obituary and add your family to my family research. Peace, Love and Blessings, Bob and Mary Frances (McCreary) O'Connor

  2. Jim, Bev, & boys, We're so sorry to hear of Grace's passing. She was such a lovely lady. You're in our thoughts and prayers. If there's anything we can do, please let us know. All our love, David & Debbie

  3. I am truly going to miss Grace. I traveled with her frequently on Horizons Club trips with First State Community Bank, and we shared many wonderful memories. I am sorry that I will be out of town on Friday and Saturday and will not be able to attend the visitation or funeral. Please send my sympathies to Grace's family.

  4. It seems as I read the obituaries there is a friend or relative of our parents…..It doesn't seem that long ago that I sat and spoke with Grace at the gift shop, then I thought how well she seemed to be doing. Mom always told of their May Day breakfast that their circle of friends had……they will be having their own May Day this year. They have moved their gatherings to a different place, what a day that will be when we all join them, you have my deepest sympathy but we must rejoice also

  5. Dear Sharon, I'm deeply saddened by the loss of your mother. May God give you strength in your time of loss. I just talked to your Mom a couple of weeks ago at the Farmington Nutrition Center. As you may or may not know, I worked with Hartford House Sr. for 5 years in Kentucky when St.Joe Minerals had a field exploration geology office there back in 1975 to 1980. Hartford and I were drill core inspectors and had good times working together. He always spoke very highly of you! Please take care. We will all miss your dear mother who was a saint of a person. In sympathy, Bob Powell

  6. Theresa, I am sorry to hear of your mother-in-laws passing. I didn't know that you had also Jerry in 2003, I am sorry for that. I send all of my sympathy to the Dugal Family…Tina Gibbs Robinson(we worked at the courthouse togehter.

  7. Dear Dugal cousins, You are in our prayers and thoughts. We wish we could have been in Farmington for Aunt Grace's funeral – times like these are a difficult part of living so far from relatives. We loved being able to see the video tribute – so well done and brought back many memories of happy times. When we celebrated our Mom's 80th birthday, Aunt Ruth and Aunt Grace told our girls that they (Ruth and Grace) were the ORIGINAL Schild sisters. Our girls have commented about that several times – and are fortunate to have shared that day with some wonderful GREAT Aunts.. Take care. Love, Pep and Susan

  8. Theresa Dugal I have not seen you in a long time but you are thought of fondly. You and Jerry's family have my deepest sympathy. Our precious memories are forever in our hearts which makes living life easier. Maybe we can get together this summer.
