  1. Tommy and Jimmy
    What a kind gentle person your mother was. She babysat my daughter when she was little and I reconnected with her at Kennett Senior Bingo. We talked of family at times and She spoke of how proud she was of both of you.
    My sympathy to you both, and your families in the loss of a very special mom.

  2. This beautiful woman I called Aunt Elizabeth.
    She was my great Aunt. My Grandfather Harry Lynch’s sister. She was loved by her long distance family. My mom Patsy Lynch said she’s smiling because she’s with her husband now.
    Prayers to the family. XOXO

  5. She will forever be loved by all of us. She was one of the warmest, gentlest, most sincere, loving people I have ever met. She raised most of us and our children. I would not have survived being a single parent without her and we are all better humans because we had her in our lives. We love you Aunt Sissy ♥️

  6. We are so sorry for your loss. She was one of the greatest ladies I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. She treated us all as if we were her family and that’s what we loved about her. She was always so sweet and loved her family (which was so obvious). God Bless
