  1. She was an amazing woman. I loved working with her, she made a horrible day ten times better, by dancing, singing, and just smiling. Things will never be the same at Menards without her. She was like family because as much as I was there so was she. I do wish I had gotten to know her better and been there for her more. I am sorry to the family for the loss of this terrific lady!

    Dear Mike & Jesse,
    I have known your Mom for a long time, she was a marvelous
    lady ! She made my shopping at Menards, more pleasant than
    anyone else that was there. She truly knew what the phrase
    “Customer Service” meant. You both have my deepest sympathy
    at your GREAT LOSS. Sincerely, Marilyn Pahl
