Beth, I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. May God grant you and your family peace. I do not know if you remember me but you and I were room mates many years ago when we lived at Bentonshire.
Our deepest sympathies and prayers are with you all.
Love, Cousin George
Our prayers and love are with all the family! We loved your mom, she was and will always be an amazing woman! Betsy and Don
Mrs. Stoulil was one of my “it takes a village” moms in Browerville. I have so many wonderful memories of her and of all of the Stoulils from that time. We really did have a “Happy Days” childhood. Love, thoughts and prayers to you Beth, Mike, Katy and Matt.
Beth, Mike, Katy and Matt: My fondest memory of Mrs. Stoulil is how she helped me learn to sew. She was so patient and she told me, “you can do it, it’s like putting a puzzle together”. I still recite that phrase to myself when I’m struggling with a sewing project! She was one of the great “founding mothers” of our generation of Browerville kids. Sending love, prayers and hugs your way.
Mike I feel the pain of the loss of your beautiful Mother, and I pray for the comfort of our loving Father as you celebrate her wonderful life with family and friends.
Peace and Love be with you and your family,
Your brother Braaty
You are all in our thoughts, remember the good times you all shared. Love you, Janet and Hoover
my visit with her this summer was full of talk of the good times in Browerville.my prayers will be with you.
Sending much love to the midwest Stoulil clan. Losing a loved one is never easy, but know that our spirits continue on for the next phase of our lives — unconstrained by our bodies that have carried so much pain, and free to expand our beings in a new world filled with love! May your angels be there to support you at this time. Much Love from Heidi & Jeffrey, and the west-coast Margaret Stoulil.
Beth, Mike, Katy and Matt: May you feel the peace and love
of our Lord greatly at this time. Your mom was a special lady. We have so many special memories of her and your dad and all of you. Your visits to California were always so much fun. We love you all and our Love and Prayers go out to all of you. What a comfort to know that
she is in heaven now with Jesus and her sweet Gordy.
I knew Marge from the golf club at Albany. For many years she played in the ladies golf league. I remember her concentration and work to play exact golf….laying her club down across the front of her feet to insure that she was aimed in the right direction! always following husband Gordie’s golf hints! Afterward in the club Marge was a good source of humor and fun!
Our sympathies go out to her family. Remember the good times!
Sorry we cannot attend the funeral. We are in AZ!

Thinking of you all at this difficult time and remembering you in our prayers.
I always enjoyed my lunches with Marge, Rita, Joan and whoever could make it. Marge was so much fun. And what a shopper. My sympathy Judy Boisen
I have been around golf all my life as a caddie and then a golfer. I had never seen a hole in one until I was in the foursome with Marge when she shot hers. It was a thrill to witness. When anyone mentions a hole in one I remember her. Don Brever
Beth, Please accept may condolences and prayers. I know so well from experience how difficult it is to lose a mother. It is never easy.
