Jill: Mom (Ann) was as kind to all as she could be. She was always willing to make friends. She put her heart and soul into everything she did. She was generous and often helped people in need. She taught me not to slouch (in all ways). She always had our backs. A wonderful Mother and Friend; she is missed.
Stephen: A loving and mom who was always there for us when it mattered most. She always considered others, sometimes over herself. She always had amazing and interesting stories. She will be forever loved and missed.
Zachary: Granny Annie was an amazing person. There are so many great times that we had, from going to the toy store when I was little to going to the ice cream parlor on a hot summer afternoon. She would always be there for me and give great advice for life. She would always tell me how much I was like my Grandpa Ed. I know she always had me in her thoughts because she would always wish me a happy birthday and write to me. I know she is in a better place with Grandpa.
Joseph: A loving grandmother that never failed in making you laugh. Her jokes, funny stories, and sharp wit are things that we will remember for the rest of our lives. The day trips, breakfasts at our favorite diner, and all the memories made in between are something that will not soon be forgotten. She played an essential role in all of our lives and she will be forever loved and missed.
