Mauridell was one of the first people I got to know when we moved to Leonard 29 years ago. She was always so pleasant and helpful at the bank. May the Lord be your comfort in knowing what a blessing she was in life to many. Salley Meier, August 27, 2013 Mauridell was such a sweet and dear lady. She will be greatly missed by all. But I know she has her heavenly angel wings without a doubt. My sincere sympathies to all her family. Sincerely Barbara Parks Barbara Parks, August 27, 2013 How very sad I am to hear of Mauridell's passing. Heaven is all the richer right now, for her being there. Mauridell was a dear friend to me and my family for years and her parents lived next door to my parents for decades. Mauridell was a great help to me and my family through the years, with her service at the bank and we deeply appreciated her friendship to us. Everyone who knew Mauridell, loved her and will miss her. I regret that I cannot make the service tomorrow, as it would be a 6 hour drive for me and I am having company for the week this week. Please accept my condolences. I will remember Mauridell only with fondness. Blessings on all of her family that mourns her death! Carol Grisham Newton, August 26, 2013 The world was a better place because, Mauridell, was here. I'll forever hear her wonderful sweet voice and her contagious laugh and see that beautiful smile. My love and sincerest sympathy to all the family. Nell Marie Hollis, August 25, 2013
