Condolence & Memory Journal


I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was one of the Juneau neighborhood Mom's looking out for all her kids and their friends, scolding when we needed it (and boy did we need it sometimes). I have missed bowling with her. We always had a lot of fun together. The world will be a less interesting place without her. She is with your Dad now and many other family and friends who made their journey from this life to the next before her. My heart goes out to all of you. She will always be remembered and cherished by those whose were blessed to have known her. Do not let sadness weigh on your hearts. She will always be with you and the many memories you shared will be of comfort to you. God Bless.

We are saddened to hear of Mary's passing. She was such a wonderful woman, so kind and giving. She will be missed by all whose lives she touched. She has now taken her place with all her family and friends who have gone before her. May the memories you built your lives on soon wipe the tears from your eyes and replace them with smiles and a warmth in your hearts. Bless you all.

Dear Panetti family, I had the privileged of working with Mary one summer in the 4H program. She was very devoted to the program and always kept everyone on track, looking forward to what needed planning months in advance so it could get in the newsletter and other communications. She was an awesome lady and I very much enjoyed knowing her. Our sincere sympathy to your family.
