  8. Earl and family
    My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. Avis was such a sweet and pleasant lady. She always had a smile whenever I saw her. She is going to be missed by all who knew her. Be assured that she is in a better place living with the angels and is not suffering anymore. Earl, you and Avis raised good children. I don’t recall ever having a negative situation with any of them (I taught them all). They were kind and respectful to me at all times.

    My love to all

  9. Earl & children:
    I am sorry for your loss. Avis was a one of a kind wonderful person . . . faithful servant of the Lord, devoted wife, loving mother, and loyal trusted friend. Avis told me one time, “The trials we go through in life are just a dip in the road. Just get up and keep moving, it will get better.” And, she’s right it got better. As my friend, Avis offered wisdom and encouragement. She looked at the best a person has to offer and never judged stupid stuff. If you needed help, Avis was the first to come and last to leave. Avis was an example of what the Lord told us to be. Faithful servant, devoted wife, loving mother and loyal trusted friend.

  10. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Munson family. May God shine His Light upon you and give you comfort in this time of sorrow and strengthen you with each passing moment. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord!

  11. I remember Avis when she worked at Kent Moore Cabinets. She was always energetic and friendly. She had a magnetism about her. She is with her Savior Jesus Christ. May this be comforting to you always. John 3:16 Sincerely, Loretta Priesner
