  1. To Alice’s family: Alice was a lovely lady. At our last Catholic Daughter’s meeting we were told that she was in Oswego Hospital but never thought she was so near the end of her life. She was the essence of kindness and very supportive of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas-Court Pere Lemoyne of which she was a member of long standing. I will miss her smile and her New York accent. May she rest in peace.

  2. I must have missed this in the paper. I will never forget her smile. She was a wonderful, faith filled woman. Mrs. Sullivan was my brownie troop leader. She was the true essence of kindness.

  3. Mrs. Sullivan touched the lives of so many of us. She was always kind and upbeat, with a friendly and encouraging word for all. I recognized her strength when I was a child. As an adult, I’m awed by all that she did. Prayers to her and her family.
