Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Aunt Ann,
    Thank you for being my Confirmation sponsor and finally giving me a middle name! Thank you for making those yummy jelly roll pancakes when we had sleepovers, the weekly Friday babysitting, for attending ALL the parties with joy and for being the Best Cake cutter ever! Your love meant a lot throughout these years, and you will be sorely missed.
    Our loving sincere condolences to Uncle Frank and the Duffy Family.
    Jeanine and Cliff Keenan

  2. Dear Aunt NoNo,
    You made a huge impact in my life. How do I know? I was just telling my niece about you two days ago. I was watching our best friends’ kids and the little girl asked me, Aunt Andrea? How are you my Aunt if we’re not blood related? I said let me tell you about my Aunt NoNo! She used to watch me when I was little and we would watch Bambi and Fox and the Hound and she took me to see Wizard of Oz on ice. She also would let me play on her treadmill and was the first person to know I had allergies and would put eye drops in my eyes, and her name was Aunt Ann but I would call her Aunt NoNo because she was always so kind and when I was about to get hurt she would correct my behavior in the softest voice and say “No No” with her finger in the air. She was such a kind soft spoken Aunt in my eyes and will always be fondly remembered by me always. Thank you Duffy Family for sharing her with us. Our condolences. Love Always, Andrea, Dan, & Liliana Butcher

    When you asked me to be a bridesmaid in your wedding, I was thrilled! I was only 11 years old, but I remember how special I felt in that beautiful dress!
