    We extend deepest sympathy to Robert Paulson and family.

  2. Jim and Florence McMahon

    We were classmates with Bernice throughout Grade and High School. She and Florence were particularly close. We last saw her and Bob at our 60th Class Reunion in Gillett. Bernice was always smiling and warm. We’ll miss her and will pray for Bob and the family. Jim and Florence McMahon, Monona.
