  13. Dear Family of Dorothy, We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. She goes way back with my dad in the old Community Market days. He used to talk to us about her and Helen Marino and the times they all worked together at the market. Years later she worked with my sister Susan as a crossing guard and worked with my sister Bertha through the Police Department. May her memory be eternal and we will keep you in our prayers. Love, Martha, Bertha, Susan & Family

  14. Debbie, Tommy, Donna and Billy: Please know that you are in our thoughts today. There are many memories of your dad and mom with Uncle Geno and Aunt Mary that are so laughable. My favorite is Aunt Mary trying to support Debbie at her Weir Basketball games screaming from the bleachers “PUT IN MAROSI” Coach Gillum continued to bench Debbie thinking Aunt Mary was her mother! Tootie and Aunt Mary truly enjoyed life and will forever be in our hearts. They say that TIME heals a broken heart, but we know that leaning on the love of JESUS will give you peace, strength, comfort and take away your tears of hurt. We are praying this for the Marosi Family……….. Your friends, Donna, Chris, Kylie and Colton Kolanko
