Although we never got the chance to meet Mrs Tramp we heard many things about her from her sons Allen and Dale.She seemed to be a very determined and strong willed and kind person who survived an accident that many people would not have lived from and yet despite her handicap went on to live many more happy years. You hear about people who make lemonade from lemons it sounded like Mrs Tramp was that type of person.Heaven just got a little more brighter on ThursdayðŸ˜‡. Rest In Peace Mrs Tramp

I remember the visits my mom and Bernadette (sisters) had back and forth between Wisconsin and Nebraska. They were such happy times , filled with laughter, for both of them. The family reunion a few years ago was great! I'll remember Aunt Bernadette from that day. Sending thoughts of comfort to all of her children and families as you grieve the passing of your mom.

God bless all of you, your spouses , children and grandchildren, been a very long time ago, but she was a good part of all 5 of our childhoods. Thanks for the memories as we celebrate a beautiful ladies life. The children of Severin and Carmelita
What a great lady. Tough, resilient, gentle nature, always willing to deal with what the Lord gave her. We need more examples like "Grandma" to set the standard for a great life.
