Memories Timeline


  1. I remember Jennie when her husband was pastor here at Bismarck United Methodist Church. She was a very sweet lady and always looked so pretty. I had no idea where she lived now. RIP beautiful lady.

  2. My family was so fond of Jennie and Bill when they were at Desloge Methodist church. She was a beautiful person and marvelous cook!  I still have some of her recipes in her hand writing. When they retired and lived in Sugar Maple Condos and were neighbors of my mother. Jennie and Bill are together with Jesus. May God Bless them.
