Dear Mark, Michelle and Margaret. I am so so sorry to hear of the passing of Mary Jane. I just talked to her about 6 months ago when your dad passed away. I have so many wonderful memories of us growing up together. I always looked up to Mary Jane as a role model, cousin and friend. She participated as a bridesmaid in my wedding on June 11, 1983. Both my husband, Ken, and I send our deepest condolences and much love for peace.

Dear Margaret,
I am so sorry to learn of the passing of your beloved sister, Mary Jane. Even though your heart is broken, you know that she is now free from pain and suffering and will enjoy the benefit of Heaven where she can join your parents, Sigmund and Emily. My deepest sympathy.

Miss Liszewski was my 1st Grade and 8th Grade teacher at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament (OLBS) school in Depew. I believe we were her first class when she had us in 1st Grade. The school did not have kindergarten at that time, so we both began and ended our time at OLBS with her as our teacher. She's always had a special place in our hearts...

Miss Liszewski as I knew her was a wonderful person to all. I was a brand new teacher at St. John’s in Alden and she was my principal. She was a great mentor. She truly cared about each and every one of her students and teachers. She will be missed by many.
