Sorry to read of Lucille passing. She was a good mom.
Thanks for the kind words Joe . She was a great mom
Sending you our deepest condolences from the Szuch Family on the loss of your mother. Growing up across the street and being best friends with Dorothy I saw a lot of Lucille and even wanted to move in with them a few times. I can’t remember how Lucille talked me out of it but I remember sitting down and discussing it at least. Joan and I saw Lucille, Dorothy and Pat at the casino a number of times and always had a nice visit.
Thanks Judy for the kind words . It was very nice to have our visits with you and Joan at the casino
We were sorry to hear of the passing of Lucille. I remember Lucille from when she worked at The Parson”s Pantry at St. Andrew’s Church. I use to love chatting with her. She was such a kind, cheerful soul. Our deepest sympathy to all of her family and friends on her passing. I am sure she will be dearly missed. Both of these pictures you put on here are beautiful. Take care.
So sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom and Grandma! She was a great lady and I always enjoyed visiting with her. Remember the many good days you shared with her.
Dorothy, Pat and families sorry to hear of your moms passing. My mom really liked her, great lady, and I know she will be missed
I am sure Lucille was so good to all of Fred’s friends but I always felt so well treated by her. If it was not some fresh baking it was 25 cents to get a burger and rootbeer at A&W during a sleepover. She was always so hospitable even when Fred was not around. She had a great sense of homour and could call you out without embarrassing you and I needed lots of calling out. She was a great lady and will be missed.
So sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Growing up on Edmonton St and delivery the paper saw her spot. In later years at the Anavets we talked a lot about the past. Sorry again.
Dorothy, sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. Thinking of you during this time.
So sorry to hear of Lucille’s passing.She and Herman were great people to spend time with and visit.Time goes by and we miss dear friends.
Dear Pat and Dorothy.. I am saddened to see your wonderful Mother’s obit.. Heaven just received another ANGEL. My deepest condolences to all of you.. May your cherished memories carry you through this difficult time.
So sorry to hear about Lucille. Herman & Lucille were neighbors and great friends of my mom & Dad. They played many a game of cards together. I have fond memories of Lucille as she was a wonderful person to us when we were kids on the block. When we come back to Moose Jaw we always visited Herman’s gravesite which wasn’t far from my mother and father. To Pat & Dorothy & Fred our deepest condolences.
Dorothy, Pat and Fred: I am truly sorry for your loss, I have so many fond memories of the times spend in your home. I too will miss Lucille; she was always a wonderful friend to my Mom, Dad and I. Your Mom was truly an incredible woman, full of life, joy and laughter. I guess, the final card player now sits at the card table with Herman, Kay and Dick as they get into a serious game of cards. You are all in my thoughts during this difficult time.
So sorry for the loss of Lucille. I have many many great memories of us all at the lake and in town getting together and just having some fun and laughs. Take care everyone. RIP
