We are so saddened to hear of Modena’s loss. She always checked on mother and was a good friend. I have kept up with her and not forgotten, while she moved down to rehab. Love, Julie Oliver

I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many fond memories of Modenia that I will cherish always. One is of Momma setting in her rocking chair talking on her telephone to Modenia or Maxine. These conversations were not always short! We were just one big family ❤️

You are in my prayers,
Frankie
