    A dear “Mentor” for Vivian in the Order of Rainbow for Girls since 1946 and close Church friend for over 50 years as well. Saddened to say Goodbye, yet grateful SHE will be looking out for all her family and friends whom she has left here and who will miss her gentle ways in voice and actions. May we all be comforted that her departure was so peaceful.

    The best thing about moving to Wareham was meeting Alice and Sherm who became family. We were blessed in so many
    ways by having you in our lives. We will miss you greatly
    but know you are now finally at peace.
