We are so sorry to read of Evelyn's passing. She was Lia's bus driver for several years for Owasco Elementary and Lia adored her and she was missed when she was no longer Lia's bus driver. She was a super nice woman and always smiling.

Barbi, Billy, Stevie & Mary- Our deepest condolences on the loss of your mom. The years spent hanging out your house during college always make me smile and your mom was a big part of that fun. Andy was always grateful for the pigs in a blanket she would make for him and Steve would deliver. She touched many lives and left many fond memories.
