Mike, Judy, and family, we are so sorry to read about Belle's passing. We remember so much about her contagious smile and good sense of humor when both of our mothers worked with her at the old Fellner, Ratheim Dept. Store in Belleville. You were lucky to have her for 99 years as we know she loved her family very much. May the good memories you have with her bring you peace.
