    Loving sister, queen bee, director of affairs, once described as a “blackbelt Catholic”. Measured to perfection in her love for Craig and James and , most definitely, in her love for Jonah and immense love and respect for Bethany and Nadine. Marlyne and Bob provided well and left so much good will and strength and love of life to their family and friends…thanks Sis.
