Dear Family—-Jim and I want to express our deepest sympathies with Francis’s passing. I think you all know how much your mom and dad meant to us living next door for all those many years. Mom Kristen and we are very saddened with the news — A classy lady ,great cook and a heart of gold. A few years ago we visited the valley and surprised her in the Shepard apartments- I ‘ll never forget the look on her face. So glad to see her. Love her so much .
Francie Lee, Patti, and MaryKay,
I well remember being at your parents’ wedding and what a happy couple they were! I’m so sorry about your loss. Frances was such an engaging personality!
Love to all the family,
Mary Kay & Family,
So sorry to see that your Mother has passed but hope that she is at peace. Know that your are in my thoughts and I’m thinking and praying for you at this time. Thinking of you from your old friend, Carol
Mary Kay please accept our deepest sympathy. I remember asking you at our 45th reunion how your mother was doing. I had just lost my mother 2 months earlier. We were blessed to be able to have a parent around as long as we did as I know many others who lost their parents at much younger ages. It still hurst don’t get me wrong. She is with your father reunited with God. Greg
Mary Kay, Patti, Francie Lee~~So very sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. I shall always have fond memories of her. Because of an email glitch, we did not hear of her passing until late Monday night December 26. Otherwise, we would have been there. That is the problem with modern technology. Sometimes old-fashioned phone calls work best. A lesson learned. Again, let me say what a kind and gentle woman your mother was; surely she is with the angels!
Mary Kay, please accept our deepest sympathy on the death of your mother. She must have been a very special lady. I knew your uncle Ted very well. We will keep you in our prayers. Mary Ellen & Mike
MaryKay, Thinking of all of you and sending prayers your way.
So sorry. Sending Love and prayers to all of you.
Cathy and Randy
Sending the Fedorovich family and fellow offspring my thoughts and condolences. Best wishes to you all.
The chocolate chip cookies, the pierogies and pitchers of iced tea – the memories are the gifts that she gave us. We’ll miss Grandma. Love to friends and family.
We loved your Mom!! She was one of the best people to be around. So funny, caring and loving. We are happy she is at peace and joined again with your dad. Mike and I are very sorry we will not be able to pay our respects, but we think of her often and will keep her and you all in our prayers. Love you!
