Mary Ann, My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time! I have find memories of your mom and always being at your house when we lived next door! Also when your parents would take us to the picnic in Doyelstown every year!
She is now your angel in heaven looking down on you.
I often think of you and would love to come visit at your hair salon! Email me sometime and we’ll make plans pattimcg@ptd.net
Rest In Peace, Josie!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you today and every day as you go through this sad time. She was very special to you and to everyone that knew her. Her laughter and her smile was never hidden. We will never forget our visits with her both in Ephrata and in Reading. Our visits with both your parents will always be a special memory to our family. She is now with her family and enjoying once again her time with your dad. Rest in peace Auntie Josie.

Your Mom was a lovely, feisty woman, MaryAnn. She will be with you always and will keep you wrapped in a hug at all times. She was lucky to have you for a daughter and you were blessed to have her as your Mom. She will be greatly missed. Love you, Flere
