My sympathy to the family, The first cousins are gathering in heaven; my mother was Irene Wieger Kurtenbach. I have memories of getting to know all of you at Father's Day picnics in the east park at Parkston and some of the Wieger siblings anniversary observances. I hope the family will continue to gather and share the memories of her life at holidays and special occasions.
