    We have lost a very dear friend who we both loved. Bonnie loved her like a sister. She will be missed and our hearts go out to Leon and family for whose comfort we pray. Friends like Leon and Cleadus are rarely found more than once in a lifetime. Are hearts are broken that she has left this earth, but we know she is in the arms of a Loving Father.

    I only met your mother briefly, but I know she was a wonderful woman, because her character is reflected in you. Our hearts and prayers are with you as you mourn this loss. As you look forward to seeing her again in heaven, know that she’s already enjoying a reunion with those she’s mourned during her lifetime. What a celebration!

    Leon and family, We want to express our condolences on Cleadus’ passing. I saw it in the Kansas City paper this morning and it brings back memories of my parents (George and Millie Marshall) and rving. I remember stopping at Casa Grande to visit my parents after we bought our new motorhome. You and Cleadus had my parents and my husband over to your motorhome for delicious lemon cake.

  12. Jan (Janet Butler) and Dennis "Mac" McDaniel, co-administrators Says:

    It was with deep regret that we learned recently that Pam Teeters Phillips’ mother, Cleadus Teeters, had left this world. We were so sorry on receiving the news that she had passed on; please accept the sympathy of Pam’s alumni class and friends, Shawnee Mission Northwest High School, Class of 1972. We have enjoyed so much reconnecting with our former classmates; however, with all of the fun we have had, we also have shared the sadness of so many of us who have lost one or both parents (or other loved ones). Your family is truly blessed to have so many great memories and kind friends who knew your mother and enjoyed her friendship and talents.
