  1. Our Mother was an amazing lady and mother of six. She had nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren. She instilled good moral values by providing a cozy home and worked hard and smart to provide an excellent Catholic Education for us all. She LOVED us all so much! And we feel so fortunate to have her as our mother and LOVE her too. I look forward to all being together someday with our Heavenly Father.
