A Memorial Mass was conducted on Saturday, Jan. 31 at 9 a.m. at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church in Whitehall with Rev. Michael Flannery, pastor, officiating. Interment will be in the spring at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery in Whitehall.

 

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made in the form of a donation in Mary’s name to the Activity Fund at the Indian River Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, 17 Madison Street, Granville, NY 12832.
