  • Hello from the Luckes

    We were sorry to read of Marion’s death. We remember fondly coming to your place in West Richland back in the late 70’s and early 80’s when we had the horse 4H club for Kathy, Julie and all the others.

    Please know that our thoughts are with you as you grieve, Kathy, Randy and Reidar.

    I will tell Julie so she can remember you too.

    Take care and stay well and happy.

  • We will miss your mother.

    She was very special. We had in common being friends with Don Deffner. She knew him and his family from Kansas days when she was young. Don became a minister like his father and he married us at the Univ. Lutheran Chapel in Berkeley, CA. It was Don’s first marriage ceremony.
