I am so very sorry for the loss of Auria Biblehausen. She was a friend for a lot of years. We played a lot of Bridge together and I cared about her so much. Please accept my sincere condolences. She will be missed.

We are so very sorry to hear of Auria's passing. She was a wonderful Altrusan. I have many fond memories of working together with her on service projects, etc. She became an Altrusan in 1985. She served as our local club President from 1990 to 1992. She served in countless other officer and chairman positions over the years, too. She served as the District Conference Registration Chairman in 2008 when we hosted the conference in West Chester. She was awarded the Altrusa Past Presidents' Appreciation Award in 2009. She was very active in the annual Altrusa Bridge tournaments, the Bells on Independence Day Parade in Hamilton, the Hamilton, OH Bi-Centennial celebration in 1991, the Ohio Bi-Centennial celebration in 2003, the Butler County Historic Coverlet project, and many years of high school scholarships for Butler County. She was an active member of the Baby's Milk Fund in Hamilton and the West Chester Welcomers' Club. We are disappointed that there will not be a funeral service held for Auria. In lieu of such, this is the Altrusa Memorial Prayer that we share with a special bouquet for our deceased Altrusans: With this token of our friendship, we send you into the arms of all your Sister Altrusans who have passed on before you. We know they will welcome you into Heaven with warm and open arms. Together, we know you will be watching over us as we continue to serve others here on Earth. Your Altrusa spirit will live on through us until we meet again. May you go in peace. My two grown sons remember Auria fondly, as she came to our home for dinner often, and we picked her up for Altrusa meetings many times. Thankful for great memories of her, Mary E Kuenzig
