Dear Dickson/Kumbier Family,

Uncle Ralph, Aunt Laura and Sharon were a big part of my life growing up living just 2 blocks away. So many happy memories of backyard celebrations filled with food, games, prizes and fun. I remember Laura dancing at Sharon and Dick’s fiftieth wedding anniversary. She was amazing!
May you be comforted by those memories and many others, knowing her life was well lived.

Love and condolences,
Maureen Stieg Oldenburg

May our crucified and risen Savior comfort you as you remember your loved one, Laura. She was a special member of mine at Immanuel. I am sorry that I am unable to attend her funeral. A good friend of mine has his funeral scheduled for the same time.
