Condolences

The family of Milada Anna Schirger has received the following condolences.

John and Ann ("Johnny and Annie"),


I am sorry to hear about the loss of your mother.  You were both too young to remember me, but we were next door neighbors for a few years on 10 1/2 street in Rochester.  I remember both of your folks - your mother being a lovely woman.  I am sure you will miss her very much but also know she is in your hearts forever. 


I remember your father too - he used to call my father a day or two before he was flying somewhere to see how the weather was looking the day he was scheduled to fly.  My father - Lowell Helgerson - was the Rochester Airport Manager and would check the weather radar a floor above his office at the airport and then return the call.  Dad always chuckled that the "Professionals" were not a satisfactory source of weather forecasts for Dr. Schiger!  


Know that they are now together and cherish your memories.  They will always be with you.

It was my honor and privilege to be a part of Ms. Milada's life. I enjoyed all of our time together. The many Holidays that we shared together were very special to me. I have many many memories of Milada over the last several years from her home to a few facilities and then finally her last place in the hospital since Oct. 14th.


Milada shared in the celebration of birth of 4 of my 6 grand children and met two of them. She shared with me her family and all of her memories. I shared with her my life as well. We said many prayers for each other and our families over the years.


I will miss her deeply, but I rejoice in her freedom f being in the presence of the Lord and reunited with her beloved husband Alex. Milada and Alex did exactly what the Lord wants us to do. They brought their children up to believe in the Lord and go on to have families that are Christians.. They gave of their love and resources to help others. They loved the Lord with a rare every day example of the truth in Jesus Christs love for them and others. I learned so much from both of them and will be eternally grateful that they were in my life.


Annie and John, so very proud the two of you must be of such wonderful parents that the Lord chose for the two of you to have. Too have the knowledge today that your mother has joined your father who was waiting with the Lord for her to come back into his arms.


May the Lord bless and keep your families close always.


 


 

John,


I'm very sorry to learn of the passing of your mother.  You and your family will be in my prayers.  


  

Sending my condolences and warm thoughts to your family during this difficult time.
