Brenda and I found Mary to be an extremely kind and warm person on the occasions we were with her. I'll never forget trying, unsuccessfully, to turn down pasta at the store---she would not take 'no' for an answer! I know she had a great life and touched many people. We are very sorry for her loss and wish the entire family well during these difficult times.

Dear Taormina family. I am so sad to hear of your mother's passing. I have the very best memories of your family and the fun that Patty and I had, as little girls. They are dancing now and together once again. I wish all of you well and please accept my sympathy.

I have no words to take away your grief, but know that Mary will be in my prayers tonight. A long time ago we were hired by J&L Steel, and worked in the Tin Mill Office, we became good friends. Seeing Mary's name I took out my photo album, and oh, so many beautiful memories returned to me. Now it is your turn to look at Mary's album and cherish all the beautiful memories as Mary's family. In sympathy and prayer, Martha

Jamil: I am so sorry to hear of your Aunt Mary's passing. You should feel peace knowing that she is, no doubt, with our Lord and probably dancing all around in Heaven with Uncle Ernie once again! Your Aunt & Uncle were certainly icons in our little town. They will be sadly missed - but not forgotten. Their spirit will live on through the many offsprings these two created. It is very unusual for such a large family to remain so close - but you guys have managed to do it some how. How blessed you all are to have each other...as the saying goes "all because two people fell in love"... You and all you cousins and family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace Aunt Mary.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

Dear Patty: The loss of your mom is only overcome with faith in God and the love of the family who surrounds you. Lean on and hug each other to feel God's reassuring care. Perhaps the future will bring more healing to our family so we recognize that God is love and there is no room for anything else in this short sojourn we call life. God bless you all.
The Nemtuda Family left a message on September 9, 2009:
Patty, John, Dan and Ernie, We are so sorry for your loss. Your Mom and Family will be in our thoughts and prayers. I know how hard it is to lose your Mom after losing your Dad. The thought that always made me feel better was knowing that your Mom and Dad are back together again.
