Mrs. Waller was my fourth grade teacher. I've taught high school for a number of years and just yesterday, something made me think of her so I looked her up and found that she passed not long ago. Such a grand, grand lady. I remember at the end of the year she took our class to her house and treated us to goodies and played the organ for us. I'll never forget her rendition of Song Sung Blue! I listened to it yesterday in memory of her. She is fondly remembered.

We would like to offer our sympathy to Floris Waller's family. We've known her for a long time and she was a grand lady. She used to come to our Sunday School and morning Bible study . She took Russ and I to an organ concert at UNI and we'd not have attended if she hadn't told us about it and gone with her. It was great, but I did not know that she had taught piano and organ. We will miss her. -- Wanda and Russ Nielsen

Sorry for your loss.
I worked with Dean for years it the
post office.
We enjoyed having Floris come to the
Retired postal workers breakfast when
she could make it.
Good by to a fine lady.

Perry, Deb and family We are so sorry about the loss of your mother and grandmother. The fond memories of your life and times together will no doubt bring many smiles to you, in time, to replace the tears of sorrow at the present. We did not ever meet her, but in knowing you Perry, there is no question that she was a great mother and person. She is smiling down on you as a very proud parent. We send our love and support to you. Chuck and Carol Kraus Schlichtmann

Hi Joleen, sorry I couldn't come but I didn't want to spread around this cold virus. I have fond memories of your Mom, and the 3 of us having lunch. She was so kind, she even gave me a small give of a decorative pumpkin pin cushion one Thanksgiving - such a thoughtful person! My prayers and thoughts are with you.
