    Mutzi was way more than just a patient, she was family. I had the privilege of caring for her so many different times over the past year. She is one of a kind. My heart hurts, but also rejoices she is with her husband she always talked about. Barbara, what a wonderful daughter you were to her. She spoke of you constantly. I will forever miss her, but treasure the special times with her and I’ll always remember her nicknames for me. They were so “fitting.” Praying for you Barbara!

    Mitzi was such a delight. So very interesting to talk to. I always enjoyed when she had to call for plumbing repairs…she and I would talk about everything and we would talk forever. She was SPECIAL LADY to us. We just want

    We are so for your lose but we have great comfort knowing that Mutzie is with the Lord and her husband. Thank you for the opportunity to take care of your mother. I will always remember her trying to teach me to knit, our shopping trips (buying shoes every time :)), helping me order at the German restaurant, our wonderful funny conversations and I will always remember that wonderful smile that she had. Praying for peace and comfort for you and your family!

Mutsie was such a fun lady and neighbor!s, She loved her football , the Titian’s and was an avid fan.I remember her always knitting and I have many of the pot holders she made us and the beautiful sweaters and baby blankets she made, Evie. We enjoyed having her and your dad over occasionally, Barbara, you were such a wonderful daughter and she was so proud of you.You are admired by many for all your accomplishments and Mutsie loved talking about you. I am sorry we were not able to visit her more this year because of the COVID virus.

    My mom was in AL at NHC with your mom, and when Mom moved to Memory Care & Healthcare, we still came over to hear the music ever few weeks and your mom always came to see my mom. Your mom and I had a selfie taken one St Patrick’s day and your mom had a copy made for me. Also played UNO with her!
    So sorry for your loss!
