Laura, Charlotte and Maureen & families, Our thoughts are with you. I have many fond memories and your mom as my godmother. (Christmas stockings, quilts, wool socks, the best pie crust ever, canned cherries and $2 bills in my cards as a kid). She will be missed! I can only hope to do 2 crossword puzzles a day in my 90’s like she did! She is an inspiration to us all to enjoy life each day and stay active mentally and physically! Love from us all, Kate, Christian, Victoria, Ryan, Luke, and Cailin

There’s so much I could say but, most important is that having Therese and Jack in my life has been a true gift and a blessing for which I will be forever grateful. My hugs to all of her family and friends and my hope that the sorrow of missing them is tempered by the knowledge that they are together again….undoubtedly organizing a game of bridge and catching up with family and friends who have gone before!
They will be in my heart always.
My love to all.
Dan Mullaney

My condolences to Therese’s family. My mom graduated with her back in 1943 and I got to know her when I visited my dad in Silver Creek. She was a wonderful, thoughtful person and I enjoyed talking to her when I visited Silver Creek.
