So very sorry to hear of her passing. She was always thoughtful and gifted person.
Sorry to hear about Jeri, Steve and Jeri were such great friends of my parents, Pat and Roger Mitchell, and they talked so fondly about them very often. Her 90th birthday party at the Shrine would have been the last time they were able to get together, and I know they had a wonderful time.
My deepest sympathy on your loss. While in high school with Patty and Mary, I remember spending time with your Mom. She was a special lady.
So sorry to hear about Jeri she was always smiling and so kind to my Aunt Anna Hudyma, my parents, Ray and Alice Marie and me . You have my deepest sympathy. She was such a blessing for all of us.
So sad to hear of Jeri’s passing. She was one of the nicest and friendliest ladies I ever had the pleasure of meeting. It was at the Belleville Health and Sports Club where I met her and Steve. Such a wonderful couple. My deepest sympathy to all the family.
