Dear Marlene, I’m thinking of you and hope your mom passed peacefully. I was so glad to visit with her at her apt. in April. We talked about her ‘potatoe salad’ and Mary Teresa Poo-Poo as I lovingly referred to her. We had a few giggles that day. I will be sure to let my brothers know. We all thought the world of her. Sincerely and with much love, Mary Margaret

I was saddened to learn of Aunt Mary’s passing. It has been many years since I have seen her.I have many fond memories of visiting her while growing up, especially when the Aunts and Uncles from New Jersey were in Wheeling for a visit. Please accept my deepest sympathy at your loss. Fondly, Cindy & Joe Wiethe

Travis and Donna,

Life is a road that we all must travel. Mrs. Church traveled this road for a good long time. I’m sure Jesus and Jim were waiting for her at the cross roads to heaven to help her on the road to a new life. My thoughts and prayers are with you….love, Denise
