Photos by Roger Zellmer of my dear mother's funeral February 2, 2013. Photos shot with a Canon 5d Mark iii using a Canon 50mm 1.4 lens.
There were photos in the church of the catechism classes of us three kids. My sister Charlene in this one, first row 2nd from right.
She looks so thin.
Here I am, in the back row 2nd from the left. Oh to look like this again.
My sister Joanne, back row 3rd from the right. Best looking girl in the class.
My sister Charlene prepared these excellent photos of mother and dad including mother's favorite flower, the aster.
Us kids, mother, and dad through out the years. We were blessed with great hard working good honest parents.
Dad loved to smoke his pipe and was a very good hearted fun loving man.
Mother in her casket which she had personally picked out. It was indeed one of the saddest days of my life.
Mother about to be lowered to her final resting place.
It was a cold clear beautiful day at the cemetery. The snow made it so pristine looking.
Mother now lies with her faithful loving husband, Floyd who died in the same home mother died in.
Beautiful flowers and casket.
Mother loved flowers as I do.
Her grandson Justin Babcock.
A very serene beautiful cemetery.
Mother loved this old wagon at my sister Joanne's house.
On the next day I drove by the old farm where mother and dad lived the last 20 years of their life.
Stopped on the plowed road in our rental car to snap photos.
To the right of this tree Dad planted many gardens and attended them lovingly producing great vegetables for mother. She especially loved to make a delicious tomato cocktail juice which we all loved to put in our chili.
Mother and Dad's trailer.
I enjoyed being in the snow covered country of my child hood.
I probably drove past this road marker 300 times on the way to my high school in Poynette.

We celebrated mother's life at a nice restaurant in Wisconsin Dells. My mother loved to take all us kids all out for dinner, doing it numerous times during her long life of 98 years.
