Marvin Vanderventer, loving Brother

Marvin Vanderventer I didn’t spend enough time with my older sister. For that I am totally sorry. But I am glad I had the time I did spend with her. Hope to see her soon. I will not be in Milwaukee for any service as I got to say goodby to her while she was alive. I will give her big hug when I see her again. Her brother Butch

Debbie Samolinski/Smallwood

She was good friend before she was my mama! Love her forever. She was a great mama, a great grandmother and a great great grandma and a wonderful friend! Going to miss you so much. <3

My grandmother, the great grandmother to my children. I will miss her very much and cherish our time together. Especially summertime car rides to go shopping.
