My sincere condolences to Jeanne and Mark on the passing of your dear mother. I have wonderful memories of your mother when we were all at OLM, and she was a member of the Mothers’ Club and a good friend of my mother. She was always so nice with a beautiful smile and a kind word for everyone. What a long, happy life she had! May she rest in peace.

A quiet, composed, beautiful woman. I used to stop on my moped excursions to chat with her.
May she walk quietly the Beautiful Trail and may the memories of her endure.
