  1. So sorry to hear about cousin Shirley, talke to her on
    Christmas and she sounded wonderful.
    She will be missed when we come up from Florida in the summer we always stopped to say hello.
    Sandie (Peronne) Bigness and
    Ruth (Peronne)Wendt

  2. I’ll miss a dear family friend who was my parents’ landlady when I was a toddler, and was my sometimes babysitter who was so very kind to me and always made me feel special. Her dog “Curly” was my “protector” at that time, too.

    Rest in peace, dear friend.
    Curly and Ed are waiting for you.
    You will forever be remembered with love.
