Our thoughts and prayers are with Nedra's family in this time of sorrow. Nedra was a wonderful person with a great sense of humor. She always helped us with our insurance needs... and God knows... it took a saint to help with Norm's insurance. She will be missed. Our love to all of you.Sherrie, Norm and Randy Bockas

Nedra was my Aunt. What a character. I loved listening to her and her sister Marjorie tell stories. They were so funny. Nedra would say "Oh my hell Marjorie" is something did not seem right to her. Then she would laugh a little. I loved her. I send prayers to her siblings and children and all of her grandchildren. Remember all the good times and hold them close to your heart

My Aunt Nedra...loved her. She could be feisty and she wasn't afraid to speak her mind at all. Those things were endearing. She will be missed and I think it must be hard to lose your siblings and I know how hard it is to lose your parents so I'm sending hugs and prayers to Aunt Marjorie and Uncle Dave, as well as, all of Nedra's kids and grandkids. But now Nedra is as peace and that is a blessing!!
