  2. Girls, I am saddened to read of your mom’s passing. She was truly one of the sweetest women I ever knew. I remember as a child when she would come to my dad’s garage to get her car serviced and often Dad (Dean Core) would take her to the house to visit with my mom (Lorna)
    Hugs to you all, Deanna
