Dear Barbara & Carolyn,
I've just learned of your mother's passing. I remember her so well! She was always lovely and nice to us "neighborhood girls". The first memory that flashed back to me was that your mother always wore a dress around the house. She was a real life June Cleaver! The second memory I had was walking down Akehurst & your mother scolding me because my mom had been calling me & I was no where to be found! Even back then it took a village. I just remember her always smiling - especially at the bridge parties the ladies had. It was a great time to be growing up together.
You were very blessed to have had your mother with you for so long. You have memories to last a lifetime!
May God grant her a long rest from a life well lived. And may He bring you and your families peace upon losing such a wonderful woman.

Dear Barbara and Carolyn, having lived across the street from you, and playing with you as kids for many years, I so fondly remember your dear mother. She was a lovely and wonderful lady, and a very good friend to my mother, Martha Catizone, who passed in 2015. It is such a blessing that you were able have your mother with you for so long. I send many prayers your way during this difficult time, and wish you peace through your memories, and through your faith. Our dear parents are always with us. God bless, Vicki Catizone Mannion

Please accept my condolences on your mother's passing. Jean was very welcoming to me when I was a new member at Westminster and was a great encouragement when I was a young mother. Her sunny spirit was always uplifting to be around.
Peace be with you and your family,
Jenny Gallo
