I met Marilyn while she was a resident at Mill Pond Health Campus. She was always so entertaining and in good spirits. I loved to sit and listen to her stories. She participated in all sorts of activities at the campus and she will be greatly missed by many!!

I met Ann only twice, but am a good friend of Cathy. Ann was very sweet, but a warrior in her own right. She endured a great deal of physical suffering the past few years and met it head on. She will be missed.

I didn't know Mrs Shoemaker, but I know her daughter, Cathy, very well. Knowing Cathy tells me everything good that I need to know about her mom.

My deepest sympathies to Cathy and her dad.
