    Kathy,  I'm so sorry for you and your family's.  It's never easy to lose a loved one, but it's harder when it's so unexpected.  My deepest sympathy to you and yours.

    To all the Pitlik family, I did not know Irma but wanted your family to know my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am a Eagle River resident and was so saddened when I heard the news of her accident. I pray you will some how find comfort to heal your hearts. God be with you.

    I've only known Irma since I moved in the apartment next to her in March.  She was such a sweet woman, who always had a smile on her face, and something nice to say.  She loved watering her plants, feeding the birds and giving carrots to the little bunny.  I will miss her.

    So very sorry to learn of the death of your mom, grandma, & great grandma. 

    When my parents, Russ & Kathy Isleb moved to Eagle River in the mid-50's Irma welcomed them.

    May God hold Irma in his arms & may he console you in your time of grief.
