One Tribute for “Mary Worch

    I am Martha Gerou’s daughter, Mary’s youngest sister. I had the pleasure of visiting Aunt Mary in the late 90’s. It was the first time I had seen her since I was a child. My husband and I spent an afternoon with her and she was such a hoot! She sang and played music on her little organ. She was such a special person. My thoughts are with all of her
    nieces and nephews (my cousins). Warm regards.
