Memorials preferred in lieu of flowers. Because Nancy's definition of family included the families of her sons- and daughters-in-law, she asked that memorials be sent to a fund established for Geneve's sister Heather and her family. Heather, who is married with three young children, has been battling cancer for seven years. If you would like to make a contribution, please do so at The Heather Temte Benefit Fund, U.S. Bank, Pine City Office, 625 Hillside Ave SW, Pine City, MN 55063. You also may make a contribution at any U.S. Bank location.
