June was my first love in first grade and I have adored her ever since. What a beauty.
I knew Mrs. Crognale only by way of the stories told by "Huffy" and Michelle over time. She was often described as "Junebug" a thoughtful and kind woman, who was obviously loved and will be greatly missed by her family. Our condolences and prayers to the family.
We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. May your good memories bring you peace. 💞

To the family of Anita and Don Kerr, My heartfelt sympathy. I was a good friend of all the Kerr family ,especially Eunice. I had lost contact with Don after his parents' passing. I knew Anita from City Market many years ago! I am 93 and unable to speak to you, personally You are in my prayers . May our heavenly father give you the comfort that only He can provide. In Christian bonds, Marje
I have been volunteering at Beaver Meadows for almost 4 years now. I have gotten to know many residents well, and even spent time visiting her husband in my early volunteering.
Anita was a tough cookie, but I wasn't fooled. She had a soft, squishy center!
In the last months at Beaver Meadows, she would come down sometimes and get her nails painted in a volunteer ministry I have with a couple of good friends of mine. I always got Anita, and once sat in the beauty salon and did her nails while she sat under the dryer.
I enjoyed her company and i was very sad to hear of her passing. I will certainly miss seeing her.
Prayers of comfort to all who loved her.
My deepest sympathy for the Carroll family, specially to Patrick. My prayers are with all of you. May her rest in peace. I am sending you a big and strong hug.
its been 2 years now and although I still
miss you I will always remember you until
I breathe my last breath. see you soon.
My sincere sympathy to the entire family, including Anita's sister - Donna (who is like my sister from another mother and father). Spent many special times with Anita and will always cherish the last one a few weeks ago when was back in PA and spent time with Anita and Donna at Beaver Meadows. May all the wonderful memories you have of this special lady tied you over during this rough time. Am so sorry am not able to be there to pay my respects to you all in person. Joan

You started out as my employer in high school but you quickly became my friend, confidant and family for my lifetime.you will always remain in my heart. Your family is still mine and I will miss you dearly. RIP! You will surely reside with God for eternity.
My loving thoughts are with you, your family and I hope the warm memories of her light and love that created the family are resilient in each of you in the days to follow. Her love for you,the joy of life she shared and the beauty she taught you t see in Others is evident and will remain a treasure each day forward. Maureen, much love to you especially,
So long Denny,
We met at west end elementary when my family moved back here from Hawaii. you were a funny kid.
Keep an eye on us, until we meet again.
I met her once and she was very kind and charming. She seemed to have lived a wonderful and compassionate life. I am sure her son that I know, Mike, received many of his great qualities from her. I hope you all feel the blessings of her life and her love as you mourn her loss.
Our deepest Sympathy to Lee, Patrick, Michael, Maureen and families. So sorry to hear of Terry's passing. I will never forget her, she was one of my first customers in my shop. And became a close friend who I loved dearly. We always enjoyed our visits to you home at Christmas. She will always be in my heart. Our children always remember coming to your home. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very difficult time. She touched many lives while here , and will not be forgotten.
Terry was a wonderful, fun and spirited woman. She was a second mother to me and I will really miss her. So many great memories of the Gordon and Carroll get togethers. I will always cherish the time I spent with her and the Carroll family! May she Rest In Peace.
Mike, we are saddened to hear of the passing of your mother. We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. May God give you strength and grant you peace during this difficult time. ~ Your AstraZeneca Family
