How blessed my brother Kevin and I are to have Mom with us for 96 years. She wanted us to be happy not sad for her because she is with our Dad once again. She is and will always be an incredible wife and mother! We love you Grammy!

Francine, Kevin and sorry to hear of your mom's passing but also so pleased that you had so many wonderful years to spend with her. My fond memories of her are of her and my mom visiting having coffee while we played at your house on the hill. They had a wonderful friendship. May her wonderful smile help keep all of you strong during this time ❤

Doris became our adopted "Grammy" soon after Bill and Francine got together. We have many fond memories of time spent with Doris. Her life is a testament of one that was well lived. A fiesty and avid Mets fan, she enjoyed beer, pepperoni and running errands around town in her VW bug. "Grammy", you will always hold a special place in our hearts. Love, Barb and Dave Growhoski
