Mrs. Shushkevich was always a delight. Pleasant, smiling, supportive, loving. A friend to her daughter, MaryLou, Mrs. Shushkevich always made me feel welcome and loved. A calm and peaceful voice in every circumstance and event, she beamed with love when she spoke of her husband, children and grandchildren. I will miss her and I'm grateful to have had her in my life. Sleep well Mrs. S.! xoxo

John and MaryLou I would like to offer my condolences to you and your families. Auntie Margaret as we called her was always very kind and nice to us as I remember and a true friend of Mom(Joan). I was sad to hear of her passing. She lived a long and wonderful life.
May she rest in peace.
