I so enjoyed working at Holy Rosary School/Rectory, Aquinas and Wegmans making it fortunate for me to acquire so many dear friends.

The Holy Rosary festivals, bingo, bus trips, holiday parties(dancing), Guild Ladies monthly luncheon and bowling club were fabulous times.

I loved being the Holy Rosary coffee mother to all the wonderful children who named me "Mrs.Fin".

The 10th Ward community was very dear to my heart.

Thank you to my dear family and friends for a wonderful life.

Special thank you to Norma Horn my caregiver for all she did.
