"Mother's Day 2015.  Mom would be 97 years old, this year.  Feedback I'm getting on her "progeny"  tells me she would would be most proud of her descendants.  So, Mom, you don't have to worry, like I always told you.  The next generation is carrying on."

"Mom, It's amazing just how much you are a part of my daily life wondering what you would do or say about so many things. You've left each of us with such a special gift; miss you Mom!"

This tribute was added by Dave Fetter on 3rd January 2015

"Jeff Said it well.  Especially that we talk often, just as I do with Dad.  The difference is that I don't have to listen his long lectures any longer. Mom just refers me to Dad...when she thinks I need a lecture.  Really do miss them both.  Great memories!"

This tribute was added by Jeff Fetter on 3rd January 2015

"Three years since she's gone - - still hurts.  But, we still talk quite often and I know she's helped out quite a few different times.  And, we still have a few "Mary Fetter" laughs here and there."

"Sorry The boys beat me....lost my password and couldn't get in to write. ( now really, you wouldn't expect that of "mois" would you?). More likely that would be Bill!
So just want to say that I think about you all the time and often find myself wondering: "what would Mom do, or say?" Funny how life plays out. Miss you MomXOXO"

This tribute was added by Dave Fetter on 3rd January 2014

"Hey, Mom!

Bill said it all.  We love you and miss you a lot.  But talking about you a lot to each other has kept you close.  It's snowing and bitter cold up north and more to come.  I am reminded, for some reason, when we were kids, of the Bridge tournament you and some friends were at, out of town.  Apparently you played all day, oblivious a blinding snowstorm that had been accumulating all the while, preventing you all from coming home that night. One of us still has the newspaper article clipping and photo of Dad holding up the sign he made reading "Welcome home Brigettes!" for your ultimate arrival. Love ya.  See you soon on Bill's Facebook page..."

"Hi Mom,
I hope St. Peter has got your Face Book account straightened out and your caught up on Earth News.  You know about the "baby boom" in your family alone. The
number of your great grandchildren is
about to double in April).  Everyone is doing well ( with the exception of a few votes for Republicans).  Oh,forgot the big news.... Annie  got an iPhone.  I know, it's amazing.  But the old news is "We Love Ya Mom" xxxxooooo"

"Thinking of the Fetter Family today on the first anniversary of your Mother's "going home."  Though I did not know her well I do remember her welcoming presence, her down to earth nature, and her sense of humor and laughter.  Clearly she was a strong and loving woman who is dearly missed by all of you.  This site is a wonderful tribute to her."

This tribute was added by Dick DeRisio on 3rd January 2013

"To Bill and family: In the early '70s, Marion and I learned to play bridge in adult ed classes taught by your Mom.  It was noteworthy that your Mom was able to demystify this intricate card game, but more important was the charm, grace and humor that she brought to the classes.  Seeing your Mom was a delight; her legacy lives on in your personality and loving spirit. My deepest sympathy."

This tribute was added by Jim Mockler on 3rd January 2013

"How she put up with a gaggle of mud-tracking, snow-dripping inconsiderates, I'll never know, but not a word of complaint escaped her lips. “Ma Fink”, as we affectionately called her, provided a warm haven to us waiting for the Mekos bus on those cold winter school mornings. She always had an open door, a friendly smile and a twinkle in her eye. Αἰωνία ἡ μνήμη - May her memory be eternal"

"Dr. Fetter,
Our thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time.
Credentialing Team, Community Care"

This tribute was added by Jeff Fetter on 3rd January 2013

"One of the most meaningful messages sent after Mom was gone said "Your mother teaches you everything in life except how to lose your mother".  Although her past several years were not what she would have wished for, we're so glad she had so many moments of happiness when she would flash that smile and most importantly, that she was comfortable throughout. Love Jeff, Annie and all of us."

"My incredible Role Model, my Friend, my Mother. You were that special angel given to us to show us the way. I pray that you were as proud of us as we are of you. Sleep peacefully Mom."

This tribute was added by Rick Fetter on 3rd January 2013

"Everyone has nice things to say about their grandmother, after her life has passed, but this was truly an extraordinary woman. She was paradoxically worldly, witty, talented, loving, shrewd, intelligent, naïve, innocent, playful, disciplined, strong, and frail. Just a few hours with her would reveal all of these things. Those of us who knew her are truly blessed for the experience."

This tribute was added by Dave Fetter on 3rd January 2013

"Her wit, her charm, her intelligence, her self-deprecating sense of humor, her love of life, her love of all people, her love for us all, made up one of the most pleasant personalities God ever created. I know she's now, tactfully, teaching the angels that "irregardless" (among others) is NOT a word."

This tribute was added by Bill Fetter on 3rd January 2013

"From your grateful and loving children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren,friends,neighbors, pets and over 300 plants.  Remembering your love and care as well as your contagious zest for life, lessons on doing the right thing and playing a mean piano (heard in the background, Moonlight Sonata which she often played)."
