Memories Timeline


  1. Ann was a neighbor of my Nana, Virginia Bettino, for many years. I remember talking to her and her husband Steve when I visited from Virginia. She was very well put together, her yard was meticulous, and she kept her house just so. I smiled when i heard she lived to 97 years old. My condolences to her daughter and extended family.
