I will always remember Aunt Sis from when I was a child and family parties always enjoyed sitting with her and my Gram. Aunt Sis I remember was always smiling and laughing and happy to talk.
My deepest condolences.
My dad Bill Roy, her nephew, also remember her as always wanting to have a good time. Sincere condolences Bill Roy and daughter Emily Fritz

This photo of my parents and me was taken when we celebrated Grandma Wom's 100th birthday! It was such a special visit because we actually got the time to sit down and chat with her about her life. Despite being 100 years old, Grandma Wom's mind was always sharp as a tack. It is one of her most cherished qualities and I can remember countless times sitting at the kitchen table in her house on Bear Mountain Rd having Grandma give us the scoop over apple pie and G&Ts. That trip we learned the first presentation election she remembers is Herbert Hoover over Al Smith in 1928 (she was 10). The first ballot she cast was for Jimmy Carter in 1976. Throughout her 102 years, she always was the center-stone of our big Irish, Catholic family. Grandma, you are the only grandparent that I have ever known, thank you for teaching me how to always make the best of out of the hand you have been dealt and turn lemons into lemonade. You will be greatly missed by all. Also, I am really sorry I walked you into a wall when I was seven. I love you- your granddaughter Samantha
