In loving memory of a wonderful person. My Mother Bernice Moskal treasured Jay's friendship as the two of them made a new life in a new town in their golden years. She was always ready for a new experience, a party, a game, always kind and cheerful. I will always remember Jay and my Mom at the Sparta seniors parties, smiling and having a great time. They were "survivors" of a tougher age, always ready to make the best of things. We will not see their like again.

The value of a life and what stays here on earth is what we give away.
What she gave to family and friends:
1) She gave them the truth and source of wisdom.....GOD!
2) She gave them her LOVE by being patient, kind and forgiving.
3) She gave us ALL the greatest serman of all....."A good Example"! !
What she gave her children has allowed EVERY single son or daughter to be personally and professionally successful. She has engendered the trust, respect and loyalty of family and freinds.
LONG... Long...long after she is gone the beauty and Wonder of her Spirit will STILL be in the hearts and minds of the people who knew and loved her. What do you call the life of a person whose LOVE and SPIRIT will be affecting the lives of people, generations from now that she will NEVER meet???.......GOD calls it .....PRICELESS ! !

My heartfelt sympathies to all Jay's beloved family and friends. I know her warmth and kindnesses have been a light to many and she will not be forgotten.

I met Jay in 1943 and have had the great pleasure to know her for many years. While helping with my fathers illness we got to know each other while working together. It is a great loss to the whole family.

In the 17 years I've been in the Jennie Drake family, I've heard nothing but good things about Aunt Jay. I'm sorry I never got to meet her personally; but, having met Ducky and Diane, and knowing their character, I know that she was a good and loving mother. I know you'll miss her. My prayer is that God's love and grace will surround you every day, until you see her again.

Mother, wife, friend and gentle, caring woman. You are loved and will always remembered in my heart. To the angels who now hold your hand I send my hope, that someday I too will join you in heaven.
