Irene was very dear. My mom Theresia loved the countless calls " the sunshine lady" made to her while she was ill. They would sing to each other over the phone. Just priceless. I'm sure they are both reunited in heaven singing with our Lord and Savior

Tootie was such a great addition to the Kuball family. My dad, Wilbur and her husband Robert were first cousins. Tootie loved to go with me or my cousin, Vicki to visit my mom (Kay Kuball) when she was in foster care. She will be missed!!!❤️
