Dear family, wishing we could be with you at this very special time. I grew up with Joy’s dad, the Schearer farm was about a 1/2 mile from the Streeter farm. I remember meeting this little cute, full of energy, red head, when was just a young girl. Always had a smile and a twinkle in her eyes. Little did I dream that I would be her pastor out in Great Falls, Montana. Joy and Keith and family live here for a short time, and we enjoyed them so much. My boys were about Joy’s age and we had many good times together. She would always bring out the fun in anything we did.
God bless her sweet and precious memory.
Love, Cousin Sheldon Schearer

I just viewed the streamed services. The pastor made us smile with tears in our eyes. God's grace and the light of His love is wonderful power to guide through grieving and confusion. Thank you for sharing the funeral through streaming. My prayers and heart is with each of the large family. The Snow family grieves with you. Some of my children grew up with some of these Streeter children. So the Snow family, Brenda, Ernie Sonja, Gale, Christi, Abe, Matthew, Justus, Joanna, Joseph and Mary shares your mourning. However, the joy of reunion in heaven will surpass the loss here. God is with you. May His light give you peace. Mrs. Leah Snow
