Lewis and Ruth - We were saddened to learn of Mrs. Voyers passing. Losing a parent is always difficult under any circumstances. We will lift you and your whole family in prayer during the difficult days ahead.

Jessie was my mother's roommate at JoLin Nursing Home for a few months around 2007 or 2008. I am happy to see that she lived for years after I knew her. I know she was a strong Christian and believe she is now at peace and with Jesus. I want to send the family my condolences.
