Chris & Moose were our neighbors for over 20 years and then they moved. We were both sad to see them leave, but we always remained friends. Over the 20 years I became friends of her & her family! I have very special memories of her. She was one of the most talented women I have ever met and only wish I knew half I of her special talents, especially her sewing. One of our fondest memories of Moose when she would be calling Beca & Oscar(one of Moose's favorite little dogs) they would be playing out in the yard & we would hear Moose calling Beca Oscar, Beca Oscar & then her voice would get louder & my husband and I would laugh and say" Oh! Oh! Beca & Oscar are in trouble again" She was one of the kindest ladies you could have ever met, you just had to get over her blunt ways. She definitely pulled no punches with people, she was a always real person & will be missed by many!! May you rest in peace Moose! Chris & Sonya Ranta

I will always picture Moose sitting right in the middle of the top bleacher at the rink. She loved watching Becca and all the kids play hockey. A great fan and friend to visit with. She was a giver.:hearts:

The first time I met Moose was as a Walmart cashier and boy was she intimidating. Moose was loud, she wanted the grocery bags packed just so. As I had her as a customer through my register she mellowed somewhat- still intimidating but friendly in her matter- of- fact sort of way. It wasnt till many years later when Cris worked a year for the school district as a bus driver that I really got to know Moose better. Whenever we saw me she was always giving me a big hug and asking me how was life going for me. I will miss those MOOSE HUGS and her friendly face at WalMart or at the Valley Quilting shop in Lyman. Keep Mooses stories going and she will remain alive in our hearts...

She is going to be dearly missed. We always had a good time together. Always welcomed her visits. She was the most honest woman. And talented. There wasnt a craft she couldnt do. Sewing quilting scrapbooking. She will always remain in my heart as my Sister. All my kids loved her too. All our beautiful homemade gifts will be held as treasures. Chris and your family thank you so much for allowing me to come visit. I love you all so much. Our deepest condolences love Lori and Mike Bird

Jeanell was such a comfort to me in Uncle Mike passing. She always new the right words to say to make my heart not feel so empty.
