    Dear Creitz family, I am saddened by the loss of Armenia as I have so many memories of being around her in her home, at school and at church. She and Lorin were generous to me in many ways with their interests and time and I often remember them when thinking of my growing up years and as I raise my daughter. I am thankful to have had her loving kindness in my life as it has helped me in many ways. You all have my deep sympathies. With love, Donna

    Dear Paula and Kay, So sorry for your loss of your Mom. Armenia was my Gma’s roommate and dining room partner for several years. She loved visiting, hugs and kisses. When feeding her and my Gma at lunch,she had the most delightful conversation with herself. Armenia was a special blessing to me. I will cherish those precious memories. Love and prayers, Linda
