The family would like to give a big thanks to the staff who took such great care of our mom at St. Alphonsus, and thank them for taking such great care of us too.
Mom loved bowling, and was still on a team up till her death. She loved anything that was with family. She enjoyed doing word search books and loved all her grand, great, and great-great-grandchildren. She also enjoyed the quiet peaceful times with just her and dad. We all will cherish the wonderful memories that she will forever leave in our hearts. Condolences can be given to the family at
