Jimmy, Jo Ann and Joe, On behalf of my mother, Virginia, and the entire Cifuni family, I would like you to know how fondly we remember your Mom and our friend, "Mrs. Britney". Our parents had so much fun together and that left us all with many happy memories. Your mom was always kind and loving to us and to my mother-in law, Marge. She was so proud of you and of her grandchildren that we know she showered you with abundant love and care. We will miss her but knowing that she is in God's loving care is comforting. We hope that that knowledge and the wonderful memories you have will comfort you as well at this difficult time. Sue Cifuni Linen

On behalf of my mother, Eva Durvetsky Kondratick and myself Lillian Kondratick Catena, please accept our heartfelt condolences on your mother's passing. My mother was also born in Wilmore PA and they were childhood friends. Mom just asked about Anne on Tuesday and when I saw the obituary, I was shocked. It is like they still had a connection and your mom is being laid to rest today, which is my mom's 97th birthday.

I have fond memories of visiting your family as a child, going to clam bakes at Bear Mountain and learning to play I'm in the mood for Love on your piano at your second house on the lake. You also had a pool table where we learned to play the game. I remember us making up quite a group of kids with all five of you and my late sister and brother, Dorothy and Jack.

Again, please accept our condolences and rest assured that your mother is remembered with love by her childhood friend, Eva.
