My deepest sympathy to all of Cil's family and friends. We went to Baldwin High School together. Then over the years it was always a pleasure to see her and thank her for all of her hard work putting together out class reunions and picnics. Her wonderful personality would always show through her pretty face.

May God bless us all who knew her and love her and again soon put a smile back into our hearts with warm memories.

Vince, Lisa and Kelly so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. She was such a vibrant, loving woman. Lots of fond memories of our Gary Drive years! May you find comfort in your memories of a wonderful Mother. God bless you during this difficult time for you and your families.

I don't know how to say goodbye to my lifelong friend. But I'm trying to share my heart full of great memories, love and the laughter that I shared with your Mom with you, rather than the sadness we all feel right now. While we will miss her, she blessed us all with her life, sense of humor, class, and generosity and wisdom, and that love lives on in each of us. Thank God she is at peace. I love you. Maureen

My dearest Sammy, how I am going to miss your beauty, sassimess and spirituality. We have been friends since 1980 when I met you ar ACPC, Alcoa Conductor Products Company. Smart, fun loving, compassionate with a love for her children and grandchildren was surpassed by no one. Rest without pain my girlfriend. You will live with us forever.

The lunch hours we spent together was more laughs than eating. I am privileged to be one of Sammy’s friends and to have shared in so many treasured times together that made for priceless memories. But it does not ease the pain of not being able to talk to her now and to wish her a happy birthday in August, just two days after mine.

There was not a time Sammy would not be smiling and keeping our group laughing and fun. She had the personality everyone wanted to be around. Sadly I did not get a chance to say Bye to her, hope she knows how much I will miss her.

Dear Family and Friends, I am beyond sad and heartbroken to lose Sammy from my life. I was speechless hearing the news. We worked together at Alcoa for years, we had fun at Alcoa, had fun meeting at Tambellini’s on Rt. 51 for dinner and cocktails. When we were together we always had fun. Then I moved to Las Vegas and Sammy came here a few times - and we had more fun. I cannot believe that I will not be able to pick up the phone and call her any more. I pray she was not in pain at the end and left peacefully and calmly. Heaven has a fun angel now. Love you, Sammy.
