    Magdeline was one of the nicest and kindest persons I ever knew. Not to mention her wonderful cooking. She and sisters Marie, Rochelle, Jewel, and Margie could have opened a restaurant and people would come from miles around. She was the only person I ever knew who took her own flour, Daily Bread Flour, through airport security, to Kansas to make breakfast biscuits for family when she went to Neal Schmidt’s wedding, Dan and Marie’s son.

    Magdeline was a special friend of my sister, Gladys. They would always call each other on Saturday nights. They would say that was “their Saturday night date.” They laughed and cried together many times. I know the Good Lord is having to tell them to be quiet as they are making too much noise! So glad they are together now.

    It was such a pleasure knowing Ms. Magdeline through my lifetime friendship with Tony. She was a wonderful, kind woman and a loving mother to her sons. I remember her strength at the loss of Steve. She is now reunited with him and her loved ones She enriched my life by knowing her and being able to enjoy her delicious cooking!! She raised four good boys, and I know you will all miss her so much. My condolences to the entire family.

    She was an inspiration to all who knew her. I enjoyed listening to her talk about her family. She gave her strength to so many, in her sweet Southern way. Love to all. . .
