Condolences to the family of Lucille Holsinger. She is fondly remembered by me and many other former employees. Harry and Lucille provided many Rome City teenagers and young adults with their first jobs. May God comfort her family.

Such a huge loss. I left Rome City Indiana long ago. But when I reflect on my childhood memories I often remember Mr. and Mrs. Holsinger. They were a pillar of the community. I remember Mrs. Holsinger always being so prim and proper. Such a beautiful woman. She will grace the heavenly places.

We would like to send our condolences to the family. I worked for Lucille and Harry at the store as so many of us in this small town did. I liked them very much. She was a friend as well, I was thinking of her last night that I would write but it was too late. I know she is in a better place and I pray God comforts the family.
