When I was growing up us kids would always go over to play with Bobby and to visit with Mrs. Pergler. She was such a devoted mom to Bobby, and always so generous and kind to us. We had so many enjoyable Sunday mornings as my dad would drive all of us in our Volkswagen bug--Mrs Pergler in the front, me, Tammy, and Bobby in the back--to church. Mrs. Pergler worked so hard to provide a good home. Her children have much to be proud of when they think of their mom's strength of character and her endless supply of energy. My condolences to Patty, Rich, and Bobby.

I knew Mary Kay from the Little Christoper Shop & Eucharistic Ministry at St. Thomas. She was fun to be with & to work with, always a smile on her face. She was a very gracious & kind lady. My condolences to her family on her passing.
