To Mary Ellen's brother,
I missed the awful news and funeral service at the time. Am so sorry you are suffering the loss of a wonderful loving sister. I worked with Mary Ellen as a volunteer at the Parish office for many years. Her sparkle and laughter enlivened those many hours.( loved her ear rings, and added to the collection!) Through her tales of growing up in a large family in S.D. it was obvious how fond she was of all her siblings. She always looked forward to seeing you when you could visit. She led a successful life as an executive Secretary and always kept her deep faith. We both had colon cancer at same time in 2004, survived to give more service to God's people. She led a such a good life, appreciated by all who knew her. I'm so sorry she had health challenges during the last few years, and missed her company greatly. We all can be sure her soul rests with God, reunited with the souls of her loved family members. May God give you comfort, and safe, good health during this continuing virus scourge.

My husband and I knew Mary Ellen from her volunteer work at St. Bede. She was a lovely woman!
