    Jenny was the best card shark in our group. She always had a great sense of humor. Rest in peace, you're in God's hands! Love you Charlotte Knight

    Ray and family, My deepest sympathy on the passing of your wife , mother and grandmother. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers! I always looked forward to seeing her at the Diocesan playoffs at Central Catholic. She was a mainstay in helping things go smoothly for all the years! You were a great team working together to support the Diocesan Sports Program! Sorry I was unable to personally pay my respects but know you are in our prayers, Coach Joe Hohman

    I have no words to express my deep sorrow for the loss of such a lovely lady and wonderful aunt. Living in England I didn't see much of my aunt Ginny and uncle Ray over the years. My memories of the times we shared in my youth will live on forever. Our deepest condolences to my uncle Ray, Laura, Anita, Scott and their families. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Glenn & Carol. Schaming
