Cherished great aunt of Nicole, Tara, Matthew, Jake, Luke, Zack, Jason and Samantha. Chickie was loved by all who knew her and drew out the best in those who met her. Knitting was her passion and many, many are fortunate to have a Chickie Blanket personally knitted for them. Her radiating smile was her most engaging trait and will never be forgotten, and forever sadly missed! Funeral Wednesday, 9 AM, at Santangelo Funeral Home, 300 N.
