This Obituary Has 2 Condolences

  1. I had the privilege of knowing “Nanny” for 20+ years. She was a force to be reconned with. She adored her family and treated my family as part of it. She always had a huge smile for me and my kiddos, and asked about them, everytime I saw her. She was so lucky to have her mind and body work so well for her, almost to the end. She lived a beautiful life and will be so missed by all she leaves here, but welcomed with open arms by the many loved ones who went before her. Love you lady!

  2. Marge will never be forgotten in our hearts. She was a dear friend and cherished caring for my daughter as I would myself. So many years have passed and we still think of her everyday.
    Yolanda, hang in, your mom was a beautiful person.
