Legacy of Love
A wife, a mother, a grandma too,?
This is the legacy we
have from you.?
You taught us love
and how to fight,?
You gave us strength,
you gave us might.?
A stronger person would
be hard to find,?
And in your heart, you
were always kind.?
You fought for us all in
one way or another,?
Not just as a wife not
just as a mother.?
For all of us you gave your best,?
Now the time has come
for you to rest.?
So go in peace, you’ve
earned your sleep,?
Your love in our hearts,
we’ll eternally keep.
We would like to express our most sincere thanks and appreciation to everyone for the food, flowers, cards, phone calls, hugs, thoughts and prayers shown to our family during this difficult time and over the past 18 months. A special thanks to our family who came to the hospital to be with us and to those who took care of things at home, especially our “cleaning elves”. Without you all, we would not be able to keep taking those steps forward.
The family of Sheri Sehi
Kris, Mike, Mattie and Preston
Jill and Derek
Thank you to the Rescue Squad – Dean, Tony, Jan, Gloria, Vicki – for your help. Also to Uncle Phil, Aunt Julie and Tammy.

Nearly three hours after it started, there was little chili left to be served at the second annual Chili Cook-Off held Saturday night.
There was plenty to sample this year as 15 different varieties of chili were there to sample, and winning top honor was Jenni VonBonn for Hot Chili.
Elgin’s Vetch Days celebration is set for June 26-30 and event planning continues. Acting on an idea shared by the Petersburg Community Club, the Elgin Chamber will seek to form a student advisory board, consisting of students from the local schools, to help come up with ideas for Vetch Days’ activities. Todd Heithoff agreed to serve as a contact person for this endeavor.
A possible theme for the Q125 Vetch Days parade is the 50’s but is still open for suggestions.
