I am sorry I was unable to attend your mother & sister's services. She was in nursing at St. Francis when I was a Freshman but left before I graduated and then attended IVCC where she was one of the best instructors I had. We met again and she helped with my mother at Loyola when she had her cardiac by pass. She was a lovely person and very honest & caring nurse. She will be missed. Geraldine Franco Devert

Loved visiting Aunt Dolores and her family at the little house on Prospect. There was always something cooking in the kitchen and a cozy conversation in the parlor. Love and prayers to Debbie and family. From cousins-- Melissa in Pekin
