The family of Adella Theis would like to extend our thanks to all those who offered support, thoughts, and prayers after the loss of our beloved mother. Thank you to all those who stayed with mom at the hospital during the final hours so that she was never alone, which brought comfort to us. Thank you to the Dingmann Funeral Home, especially Deb, for their compassion, concern, and professional manner in which they handled the visitation, the funeral, and so many other details. Thanks to Father Naduvathaniyil, the pallbearers, those who helped prepare and serve the dinner, and all those who helped in any way. Thanks to the Paynesville Hospital and Eden Valley Clinic staffs for the kind and wonderful care given to mom, especially over the past weeks. Finally, thanks to our loving families who traveled from many distant places, to our relatives, and many friends who came and shared in the celebration of life for our mom, grandma, and great-grandma.

A big thank you also to the volunteers who helped pick corn and husk it, and to Al Zabinski for cooking all that corn. Thanks to all the Lions members and to the Leos who helped. Awesome job done by all, and all the Lions members who helped. Our community support is greatly appreciated always. Thanks again.
