Memories Timeline


  1. Cindy Sue Abbas, even though certain people did not recognize you as ‘Starline’s daughter and yur girls as her granddaughters, the family knows the truth!’ Yur Aunt Texy is ‘pissed’ about that one! She know’s Starline would be livid over that Obituary! Aunt Texy and Cuz Barbie Schrenk will definitely make their voice be heard in that prospect! We love you sweetheart! You were and always will be Starline’s adopted daughter and Allison Starline Moe and Kylie Marie Moe will always be her granddaughters! Period! xxoo

  2. Tis truly sad and shallow that the Bilharz family found it necessary to leave you out as a daughter and Allison and Kylie as granddaughters. You are blood family, not by marriage family! You deserved better than that! Just saying, as Starline’s blood relatives! Some people just don’t use good judgement!

  3. There are so many to share! We spent the entire day on clear lake fishing and got so burnt! When you watched our kids for us. The night we got snowed in at your place..oh wait we only lived a block away! We will miss you dearly we love you!

  4. I’m glad I got to thank. You again for all you did for me. I’ll miss you, but never forget you! R.I.P sweet lady.
