    Ed, Kathy & Family,
    So sorry to hear of your Mothers passing. I will always remember the little wave she would give Carol & I when we would see her at mass at the Bishop Noa Home. Our thoughts & prayers are with you.

    I never met Thelma, and it will likely seem odd to anyone viewing this that I, a complete stranger, thousands of miles away, would be leaving a tribute for someone I never met. But, I felt compelled to leave this little message to thank her for a small gift she indirectly imparted to me in the form of a chicken casserole recipe, contained in a 1980 Upper Peninsula Business and Professional Women’s Clubs cookbook that was given to me by my mother. The cookbook was first given to my mother by my grandmother who grew up in Houghton a lifetime ago. As luck would have it, I pulled it out of my cabinet today and made Thelma’s delicious chicken casserole, following her recipe to a tee. And so, I thank you Thelma for your generosity and for imparting to the world your wonderful recipe. Your memory will forever live on in my household. May you rest in please.
