    I remember when your mother was our Cub Scout den mother. We had an afternoon tea for our mothers, sold bottles of vanilla as a fund raiser, and she once coached our 8th grade St Pat’s basketball team in a game against the fathers. I hope my name rings a bell. We went to grade school together, played on the St Pat’s basketbal;l team together and I attended Holy Name for our freshman year and part of our sophmore year before my dad was transferred. I have great memories of your mother. I lived around the corner for a couple years before we moved to a house across the street from the old South Side Market. We finally moved to a house between St Ann’s & HN high school. I read the EDP on-line every day.

    Tim, Ellen and Families,

    I was so sorry to hear the Marge passed away. I did see her from time to time and we got to have a few good chats. Your mom was a special lady and classy lady.
    I am out of town and will not be able to attend her service. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Please give my regards to Spar also.
