Memories Timeline


  1. Joann: Only because Ethel just told me the other day an aunt of yours was ill…that I know this is must be your aunt. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  2. Aunt Clara was such a “good and faithful servant”and a lovely presence in my life. She talked of you frequently and took such joy in your being there for her, so this must be a hard week for you. Know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. John Michael sends his condolences as well.

  3. We knew Clara and Ernie in Delaware Ohio when Ernie worked for PPG. I was his replacement when he retired in 1984. Great memories of visiting Clara and Ernie in their country home. They were both very good cooks, and loved to entertain. Clara was such a beautiful person, always cheerful, fun to be with, loved children, and was always interested in what was going on in your life. I’m sure she is missed by her nieces and nephews. We just found out about her passing. Sorry we didn’t hear about her passing earlier. Such a great woman.
