Memories Timeline


  1. Thank you, Jeanne. She loved her friends with a big heart. Her tap days were some of her favorite days.

  2. To Marilyn’s family – I am very sorry for your loss. Marilyn was a lovely person, always kind and sincere. She will be missed by many . I have lots of fond memories of our tap dancing days together and her husband Ray when he would come to watch our performances. Wonderful people.

  3. To Marilyn’s loving family, our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. Marilyn was a dear close friend for so many years, I will miss our dinners together very much. In years past John and I always enjoyed .double dating. with Ray and Marilyn and even before that, our children were raised together. She was an excellent Mom and Grandmother, all those who knew her will miss her more than words can say. God speed Marilyn! Love Nannette and Avery Paul

  4. A.J.! Thank you so very much for your thoughts and sentiments! We appreciate it very much, A.J.!

  5. Christie and Sherrie, I was saddened to hear about your Mom’s passing. .Mal. was a very sweet lady. Best wishes to both of you and your families at this difficult time.

  6. Was sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. She was a good Elk member attending dinners and knitting scarves at Christmas to give away. She would comment on how happy Ray would be to see how well Bocce is doing. It started way back in 2002 and is still going strong. If not for his perseverance and strong will, it would not have gotten up and running as well as it is. Again , may i offer sincere sympathy to the Larolo family.
