April 18, 2019 In remembrance of a life well lived, I will forever cherish the memories of all the holiday gatherings and family gatherings we shared in the 50's and 60's. Aunt Jenny was always the life of the party and her laugh was infectious! May she rest in peace now. My deepest sympathy to all her children and family members. Linda Salsberry, Dover, TN

April 18, 2019 Mom was always there for us anytime we needed her.She and dad always gave us great family vacation memories. She was a strong and compassionate woman who was there thru-out our adolecence and adult lives. She was our mother, tutor and friend all wraped up into one beautiful person and she will always be in our hearts, thoughts and prayers with sadness and love. James Rattell, Belchertown, MA
