    My sister, an Aunt to Rene’ Schlegel of Salem OR and Thomas Battles of Ellicott City, MD, will be missed by us all. She was a wonderful person who suffered with illness for many, many years. I am so proud of the way she handled it and still trusted God. Herb, we were so lucky to have you in her life and in ours. You were a caring and loving husband and we will never forget that. We will always be there for you.
