A memorial service took place on Aug. 12.
Althea was born May 25, 1920, to Fred and Magdalena Finke in Palmer, Kan.
She was the most innocently honest and giving person we ever knew. She was full of loving energy until her last conscious days and slipped away quietly to be in the presence of pure love.
She is survived by sons Bill and David Miessler; daughters Linda and Diane Miessler; and brother Eugene Finke.
Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of the Foothills in Grass Valley.
