  2. Fronie was a neighbor of my mom at Lee Manor. Mom and her always gave each other a plate of food (usually sweets). They visited most everyday. She was a very giving and caring person. My mom is gone since 2017 but I know she loved her. I am so sorry for the loss of you mom and grandmother.

    Fronie was the most sweetest, funniest person I have ever met. I worked with her at the Executive Inn when she worked in the Catering Department. She was always a hard worker but always full of laughter and fun. Never a dull moment around her. She will be greatly missed. My prayers are with you all.
