Not sure what to say?

I am very sorry over the death of Mrs. Quackenbush who was a lovely lady and a pleasure to talk with @ Holy Spirit Church. I will miss her very much and I was blessed to know her. Quality is very rare today!

Debbie, Dorothy, Dave & family:

If I were asked what is a perfect "trio" I answered Aunt Ril, Neat and Helen". Aunt Ril had this soft graspy kind of voice, but dont kid yourself "she was "german".
I knew she was special when she told me the story of how she and uncle Dave took in two cuban children brother and sister in late 60's that came through a church without the parents. The children knew no english but Aunt Ril made it her mission...

All I know it that I love her and that she love my best friend, Lorraine, her niece dearly, as she does all. She kept the spirit of Anita even closer to us, and I was always grateful for that. She would hug me and smile and she had a way of loving the best in you and I know she is hugging Rick now.

My blessings of love and light for heaven welcomes her and she is watching over all of us now in a different way. Donna Marinaro

To the whole Quackenbush part of our family:

I loved Aunt Ril, from the stubborn German to the loving Aunt. Every part of her was a charming combination of practicality and passion. My Rick loved her and all his Aunts and Uncles with his whole heart and that love of family was one of the reasons I knew that we had the common bond that make couples endure.
One of my fondest memories is the week Rick and I spent at a lake in Vermont with aunt Ril , uncle Dave and Anita . What...

I am so saddened to hear of Cyril's passing. I have lived next to the Quackenbush's nearly all of my life! Ackerson ave will not be the same again. Will never forget how nice Cyril and Dave were to me as a kid. She will be missed, but not forgotten!

Dear Debbie, Dorothy , David & family,
I can't tell you how devastated I am to hear of your mother's death. Growing up we were all so close, and your mother and father made sure, after I moved to North Carolina, that my mother had them for company. Aunt Helen also told me about Ricky and hearing of the two of them, my heart is broken. My health precludes me from making the trip to Wayne, but please be sure that you and the whole family are in my prayers and that I will offer my...

To All the Quackenbush Clan,

we will all miss Aunt Ril terribly but are sure to hold on to the memories of our time with her and especially the Chadwick escapades with all of the cousins. She was truly one of a kind and along with Aunt Neat and my Mom were the closest set of sisters anywhere. Our deepest sympathies to all of you.

Bob , Elaine and family

I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Cyrilla. I was Debbie's boss at one time and came to know and love Sirita (I could never get her name straight) so I was allowed to call her that!
I hope over the years that I knew Sirita that I was able to bring some joy and laughter to her when we spoke or went out to lunch or dinner. We were supposed to go to the Lincoln Airport restaurant for BLT's when she got better. I will now go in her honor and memory.
I will always have a...

I was saddened to hear of your loss.I only knew Cyrilla as my sister's longtime neighbor but have fond memories of the occasional backyard conversations over the years. Please know how very sorry I am.
