Connie and Dick were our neighbors for many years. She was an inspiration to me as a young mom and a friend through the years. My thoughts and prayers to her family. Jan

To Connie’s family,

I played tennis with Connie right up to the time she quit playing. I enjoyed her wonderful personality & her spunky attitude. I admired her for all her accomplishments. I know her memory will be eternal for all who loved her.
RIP dear Connie~🙏🏻

I love you so much, Gram. I hope your soul and brain are free and at peace. You always created such fun, special times for us and I will never forget any of them. That princess birthday cake was amazing!
Evie says to thank you for knitting the ornaments with bells because our kitty cats love them:).
I love you forever, Col

One of my favorite memories as a small child, was Saturday nights, when Grams & Grampa would come over dressed to the nines to go dancing with my mom & dad (Teresa & Bill) at the Farmington Hills Holiday Inn whenever the big band was playing. Oh how Grams loved to dance!!!

I’ll never forget the great smile of Mrs. Cronin. It was always there. I first met Mrs. Cronin in the 1953/54 school year. I was in Girl Scouts with her daughter, Chris (who turned out to be my best friend to this day). I was amazed at how Mrs. Cronin was able to raise a large family, go to college and have a job all at the same time. She always had time to talk with us when were we at her house and welcomed us any time of the day or night. Chris and I worked together all through high school and would often get in quite late at night. We often took turns spending the night at each other’s house and Mrs. C was always ready for us the next morning. She was a wonderful lady and I can see that she will be greatly missed by her entire family. My condolences to the entire family. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
