    Our thoughts are with you all.
    Pat was a warm beautiful lady, always smiling.
    I was one of Charles & Agnes LaPier clan just down the road and used to baby sit Pat and Jane as little ones..
    Our families shared lots of good memories.

  2. Dear Jane & family,
    I am so sorry to read of your mother's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you, as you mourn her passing but, more importantly, celebrate her life.

    I will never forget all of the beautiful memories I have of Aunt Pat. Always kind and cheerful and made the best chocolate cake ever. She once left a huge mushroom in the driveway on Capel street for me to find knowing it would make my day to discover it. My own love of gardening was inspired by Aunt Pat and Uncle Jim and the wonderful tomatoes and spanish onions grown on the Tenth line in Corunna. My thoughts are very much with all of the family at this time.

  12. Hi Everyone,

    This is Mike. Sorry to hear about Aunt Pat's passing. Lots and lots of good memories back when we were kids going from our house to your house.
    I remember Aunt Pat giving me and Dave
    10 cents each for cleaning the fireplace trap. (maybe about 1967) That was the first money I earned and was the equivalent of a million dollars.
    She was a nice lady and her and Uncle Jim were a lovely couple.

    I hope everyone is well.
