To the Marum family,
Mrs. Marum was such a wonderful and kind lady. I remember her at the SSPP events. Along with my mother, these wonderful women took care of all of us schoolchildren and made events fun. I saw Mrs. Marum for years after at the bank and always loved to chat with her. My condolences.

Susan, Patty and Billy
I will always remember Alice’s laugh and smile. She was a good friend for many years to my mom - Lorraine Kozak. Alice would always ask how mom was when she went to the nursing home. I also remember the SSPP ladies and the the stories of all the fun they had together in NY and down the Cape
Alice was a great mother and a great friend.

I remember Mrs. Marum as an active participant at SS Peter & Paul School & Church. I also remember her as a very pretty Mom of an old Puluski Park friend. Sending condolences from the Quirk Family. Such a hard time to lose your Mom at any age.

Dear Sue, Alison, and Jim,

I am so so for your lose. Your mother mother was remarkable for many reasons. It must be hard to say farewell during these COVID times. I always loved that our mothers walked Bakers Beach, perhaps not together, but with the same love in their hearts for the sand, the ocean, and the peace it brought. Let's hope she enjoying the beaches now free from encumbrance.

Love to you all,

The Rockwell-Glod Family
