Mike, Peggy, Tony and Jeff. Sandy and I want to extend our sympathy to you with the passing of your Mom. With the death of Aunt Annie, the last of that Thoele generation is now gone. No more will we hear the stories and laughter that always occurred when a gathering of the clan happened. (Seems there were a few arguments, mostly about cars, that also were loudly discussed). I know you will miss her greatly and the pain is dark right now, but it will get brighter as time passes and the smiles that you have in the future will be of great memories of your Mom. Love you guys.
Bill and Sandy

Dear Mike, Peggy, Jeff, Tony and your families. My heart and my love are with you during this difficult time. Saying that Aunt Annie will be missed by this family is a huge understatement. As you well know she was one of a kind with humor and love that was unequal. It seems unreal that our Aunts and Uncles are all gone now from the Thoele side. We all share something very special that doesn't exist in many families. Weather at Grand Pa and Grand Ma's farm, your house, or Aunt Nellie's house it was a special time the all the cousins.
I wish I could make the trip from Colorado for the services, but my wife's health will not allow her to travel. Just feel the love and caring coming from here for your families and Aunt Annie coming from my heart.

Dennis (aka Mike), Peggy, Tony and Jeff, sincerely condolences from Pat and our family to you and your families for the loss of your mother and my aunt. Aunt Annie was truly one of a kind. I will always remember her loud voice and direct, sometimes colorful, remarks, her loud laughter and sincere smile. The photo in the obituary shows the love in her smile. I recall on more than one occasion she and mom laughing so hard that tears would stream down mom's face. With her death memories of her stop being made; however, many memories will live with you and yours for many years to come. Dewey and Pat Fry and family.
