Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Remembering Aunt Mary can not help but bring a smile to my face. For sure her gift of baking the most scrumptious sweet treats and always having them on hand when we visited was something to look forward to; but it was her cheerfulness and her ability to see the funny side of life that will stay with me. Together with her sister, dear Aunt Sophie, Aunt Mary passed down a legacy to all women in her family of strong, determined, committed females who nurtured, were hospitable and always sought the sunny side of life. - Posted by: Debbie Michalow Kozusko (Niece) on: Jun 02, 2017
