My sisters and I loved our Aunt Bessie. She was always the life of a party. We had such fun on our bus trips to the casino. She had a joke for every mile. She was always so happy to see us as we were to see her. We will miss her greatly. May the Good Lord embrace her. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

My sisters Yvonne, Lana, and Diane and I share many beautiful memories of our mother Carmen Russo Knebel (Bessie’s niece) and Bessie, Sam and their family. It was always a joy to visit with her when I would come came by to pick up the delicious sausage for special occasions. She will be joining her brothers in heaven. Thank you, Aunt Bessie for the light you brought into all of our lives.

I had the privilege of providing the Holy Eucharist to the Spedales, after Sunday Mass last year. She was always so kind and appreciated plant and flowers. We enjoyed catching up on the week, after Holy Communion. Her pride for her husband and family was always very apparent. I will always remember how her smile lit up her husbands eyes and a room. Such a beautiful love. Your physical presence will be missed but the memory of how you made others feel is long lasting. May your soul Rest In Peace. Lots of love and prayers, The Ellickals

I always looked forward to my yearly visit with Mrs. Spedale when I picked up the sausage at Christmas time!

She was always so very sweet.

I really missed our visit this Christmas. I can still hear her voice now. She always asked me how I was doing and how my family was doing and we would get caught up on everything.

I truly miss her already and she will always be in my heart and prayers especially at Christmas time.

Eternal rest grant unto Mrs. Spedale O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her, and may she rest In peace. Amen

Many memories of my Aunt Bessie. We had several car trips that were so much fun. One in particular was when she took a picture of me in Yellowstone National Park , me wanting a picture of me and a Bear , crazy me. He started coming after me and I jumped in the car before he came and clawed at our windows. Our times at Ladies of Sacred Heart, glad I was able to join and see her and so many others. She was so fun loving with many jokes under her sleeve. May she Rest In Peace. She will be missed.

Prayers to the Spedale family for your loss. Bessie was an amazing woman and a great friend to our Mother (Elizabeth Cuccerre). I enjoyed our Sacred Heart cookie baking and St Joseph altars with Bessie. She will always hold a special place in my heart. RIP Bessie. We love you.
