James Etzkorn and Cherie Lynch Memorial: Please join us in sharing memories and stories of our parents

This section includes both obituaries and memories. Honoring our loved ones who have died does not end immediately after their passing. We recognize that… so we’re extending our obituary section to include individuals who may have left a long time ago. If you want to remember someone who is gone, either recently or long ago, please send a photo and a few sentences to mskymkemp@gmail.com. Tell us why you would like to honor the person–is it their birthday, the date of their passing or some other date of significance to you? Pet remembrances are also welcome.

James Etzkorn Friends and family of James Etzkorn and Cherie Lynch, please join us in sharing memories and stories of our parents that were tragically taken from us too soon.Cherie Lynch

We ask you to gather at the Alderpoint Fire Hall July 31st at 4pm for a potluck and celebration of life. Please bring your best stories!

They may have not spent their entire lives together, but due to timing of them each passing so close to one another, the Etzkorn sister’s have decided to combine their memorial, while also honoring their individual lives….
