  5. So sad to learn of the loss of another .Centerville. neighbor. I’m not even sure how I know her. Maybe just from the neighborhood, or maybe I or one of my siblings went to Centerville School with one of Mrs. Maloney’s children, or maybe she was a customer of my father’s, Art Visel,(who died in 2000) at Visel’s Motor Service. She was a sweet lady and a smiling face in my childhood. Condolences to the family.
