  9. Dear Steve & family, So sorry to hear of the passing of Becky. She always had a special place in my heart. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Patti Mrvos Craighead

  10. My Dear Psaroudis Family, We are sadden by the passing of Rebecca. She was dedicated to her family and her teaching profession. She was a warm and caring person. I personally recall our discussions as we commuted together to New Cumberland Junior High School together. You have our deepest sympathy.

  11. Becky was a great friend from our high school days in St. Albans, WV. An extremely outgoing and caring person who was liked by all who knew her. Althought I had not had an occasion to see or visit with her since those high school days, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and know that the world is a little less bright now that Smith (as I always called her) is not here to light up everyone with her smile.

  12. To the Psaroudis Family: Becky and I shared wonderful years at New Cumberland Junior High School. We had so many laughs and good times and were so ornery together!! I’ll never forget her for the good, kind person that she was and for the many memories that we shared. God bless all of you. My prayers are with you. Mary Lou James

  13. To All of the Psaroudis Family: So sad to hear the news of the passing of such a sweet person. Becky was always one of my favorites. Always enjoyed talking to Becky and last time she was home we really enjoyed seeing her. I am sure you will all miss her deeply and she will be in our thoughts and prayers.

  14. Steve, John Dino, Frank, and Steve, When I think of Becky I always picture her sitting on the floor of my parent’s sitting room telling us stories. She always made you laugh and she always seemed to be in a great mood. I know she loved her boys. The last time that I saw her was at the Greek Festival a couple of years ago. Although she was walking with a cane, she was in good spitits. She will be missed. We are all thinking of you at this sad time. Love you, Kathy Bowman

  15. Frank, Steve, John, Dino, and Dad: I guess it’s appropriate that my comments follow Millicent and Kathy’s, as I’ve always thought of them as older sisters, and Becky as a second mother. She could always be counted on to play that role perfectly — making me welcome in your house or breaking up our fights as necessary. Although it’s been many years since we were all together, she will be very missed by me. She — and all of you — are in my thoughts. My folks send their love and condolences, as well.

  16. Steve/Famliy: Sorry about your Mom. She was always so nice to Cathy and I after we had Jacob. We always remember her telling us (over 28 yrs. ago) you are going to have a boy and he will be born on March 26th. She was right. Jim/Cathy Horstman

  17. Rudy, So sorry about the passing of your mom. Omar & I know how you adored her and she could really make you laugh. We send our blessings to all! Wish you were still here in the house in the bend on Marland Heights. It was full of fun.
