I will miss Sidney. Even after moving to Jackson I could talk to her on the phone. She was a Curve Friend! She was always upbeat and could make you smile. Blessings to her family, Cece

Dear Heidi, Bobby and Ronny, this is Vicki Knapp Shannon. Remember Ann Street? So sorry for your loss. Your Mother was a wonderful friend for many years!! Do you remember me babysitting for you? Your parents were always an active member of so many groups. Our neighborhood was so much fun for all of us. I would see her at Curves in Haslett and we would visit for a long time. She would ask about my family and I am blessed to still have my Dad and he is 96. He sends his condolences to all of you. I will keep you and your families in my prayers. Love to all of you.

I knew Sidney for many years at Curves & then a few of us started the Lunch Bunch that continued after Curves closed. We all enjoyed Sidney at lunch at Schuler’s but also some excursions to the Holly Hotel or the French Laundry in Fenton or Judy Benedict’s back yard. She was a delight to have around & enjoyed being with us. We missed her when she moved to Jackson but I did call a couple of times & had nice conversations. The world was a better place because of Sidney. My condolences to your whole family.

Dear Beurmann family,
I was so sorry to hear of the death of your beautiful mother. Jane Grettenberger called yesterday to let me know. Sidney was such an incredible friend to me. I loved her very much. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Love to all of you,
