  1. Mom, Dad, Joanne, Jim,Russ,David, We will miss Nona greatly. She had a zest for life. We think she was Pitizazed. Her uncanny ability to fire up a sedate room was incredible. She raised 3 wonderful kids, who can and will remain Pitizazed for eternity. Just remember, when low on energy, do what Nona would do…reach for a can of PITIZAZ!

  2. Doty, Rex and Mary shared the information concerning your mother with us and we wanted to just drop you a note expressing our sympathy and prayers at this time for you and your family.
