May God bless your family with all the wonderful memories of Almeda. I remember what a team she and Bill were, and now they are together again. This brings me joy! She had a full life with many blessings. She was so proud of you, Kim and Kay, and your families. She will be missed at our holiday celebrations.

i have a lot of good memories of Mrs. Fiester. When I was growing up our back yard connected with the Fiesters back yard. My grandmother Ann Whitman was in home bureau with Almeda. I attended meetings with her and enjoyed swimming in the pool. Kay at one point tutored me in Math I think. I remember Kim and DeeDee who lived across the street from us were good friends. I remember when Karyla was a little girl. I'm very sorry for your loss. I lost my Mom almost 4 years ago. Glad your Mom enjoyed a long life. I really wish I could have attended the service today and seen you in person. Blessings, Jodi Nallon Austin
