We are very sorry for your loss. Almost 20 years ago, we were neighbors of Judge and Mrs. Warmuth. I sincerely hope you will enjoy this story. One of our daughters was selling girl scout cookies, and Mrs. Warmuth observed as our then 7 year old daughter went from house to house and continued to get rejected when she asked if anyone wanted to buy cookies. Mrs. Warmuth walked over to Jordan and began talking with her. Jordan told her that she only needed to sell 10 more boxes of cookies to get a certain prize. Mrs. Warmuth ordered the 10 boxes! When it came time to deliver the cookies, Jordan knocked on their door and was told by Judge Warmuth that Mrs. Warmuth was not there. She politely told the Judge that he owed her $30.00 for the case of cookies in her arms! I wish you could have seen the expression on Judge Warmuth’s face! Again, I hope you enjoy this memory. Mrs. Warmuth was a very special lady. We certainly enjoyed talking with her during our walks around Fort Clark.

I was very saddened and sorry to read of Nancy’s passing in the paper. I knew her and her husband since the late 1950″s. I worked for Nancy right out of high school. She was a wonderful woman and I will remember her as someone special in my life.
