To Mary Anne's family we send our sincere sympathy for the loss of your beloved mother and grandmother. She was a wonderful devoted, caring and nurturing mother to her own family and to those children in her daily care that she baby-sat. She was a great person who will be missed by many. May you find peace and contentment in the happy memories of your mother. We keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Joan and Edgar Coy

To Rena and the whole Bittinger, I’m so sorry to hear the news of the passing of your Mother.
I know this will be a rough patch in this journey of life we all take, but I’m sure she is walking with the Lord and at peace.
Keep her in your heart and remember the good times, and at that point she will never be forgotten.
God’s peace be with you all throughout this difficult time and bless you all

John and Anne Tighe.
