Memories Timeline


  1. Joe and Jeannie, Sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Sincerely, Jerry Hamill

  2. The Krivak family: Please accept our deepest sympathy on the loss of your beloved mother. May she now rest in peace with the Lord. Our love, John and Irene Grossi

  3. An earthly Saint has now gone to Heaven! When I was a newly ordained priest at St. Paul’s in Weirton, Helen and her gal pals from Freedom Place would be the first to be at the front doors waiting to walk down to the daily Chapel. I’ll never forget the morning when Helen was making her way down the ramp when I said to her: “Helen, you’re so holy!” Without missing a beat she was all smiles and simply said, “Thank you.” That day I met someone with true humility, a woman who took a compliment — whether or not she believed it — and graciously received it as a gift. It was always a joy to be with her over my three years at the parish. And, it was my recent added pleasure to bump into Mrs. Naret at Shop-n-Save back in April, to catch up on her son, Joe, my schoolmate and her mother. May Helen enjoy her husband again after all these years and may you all know of my prayers for you all! In Christ Jesus, Stan Tuchalski

  4. Mr. and Mrs. Krivak, Ed, John, and Jeff, Sorry to hear about your loss. You are all in our prayers. Bill and Mary McCune
