To Eva, Leslie, George and family:

My deepest condolensces to all of you . Your mother was a very beautiful person and she will be sadly missed.

She had such a beautiful laugh and she had a great enjoyment for the famous, talented singer -- Engelbert Humperdink.

Your mom also made the best popcorn with lots of butter and mouth-watering french fries. I have very special memories of your mother.

If you have a memorial service for your mother -- I would very much like to come .
Take care and be safe,
-Liz Horvath-

Grandma, you had the kindest soul, the biggest heart, the sweetest laugh, and the prettiest smile!
You could take away pain or fear with the touch of your hand, and you always gave the warmest of hugs and kisses and I am so thankful Brett was able to know what those hugs felt like.
You will be forever missed by all of us.
Love Leah and Brett

Would like to take a moment and reflect on the extraordinary impact Grandma made on many people. And a lot of it was through insight and food.

She was a great part of my upbringing (as were all of my grandparents) and was always there to listen - one thing that stands out was her ability to listen / discuss / and impart thoughtful responses without degrading the subject. She always showed keen interest, and never discouraged.

I will forever miss her and hope that my children will remember her too!
