  1. Thank you for sharing Aunt Reta with us over the years. What a special lady! It was always a joy to see and visit with her even though we did not get the opportunity often. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  2. A wonderful lady who will be greatly missed. I loved my sister-in-law very much. So many memories of fun times at Cronk Family reunions & weddings, and especially when Reta & Bev stayed with me in McMinnville for a few weeks in April 2012. My deepest sympathies go out to Craig, Larry & Kim, and Alan, Les, Lyle, and Joann.
