    My first time in Vegas was with Chuck & Penney, a wonderful time spent accompanied by Debbie, Cari & Char. I remember clearly when Penney hit the Jackpot on the Family Feud slot machine….Priceless smile. Wonderful memories. There will be an empty chair at the holiday table this year, but it will be filled with loving memories. …R.I.P dear Penney and say hello to Chuck for me.

    Joanne and sisters. I saw that your Mom passed away at the Holy Family Home. I remember your Mom as a very kind and loving person. My Mom passed away at the Holy Family Home in 1993. I just wanted to express my condolences to all of you and your Mom will be in my prayers today. Jim Martello

    Thank you for all the wonderful memories of growing up with you and Mr. Van, as neighbors. Watching your family growing with a bevy of beautiful daughters, and friends, kept the neighborhood alive. Rest with peace, and contentment. And may it have an eternal bingo hall.

    Sincere condolences to Joanne and your 4 sisters:
    Word of your Mom’s passing just reached me this morning (20 Jan.), bringing back a flood of memories about growing up and coming of age together in our old neighborhood. That was a whole lifetime ago. Your mom’s amazing smile still lingers in my mind. I will always think of her with great affection and deep respect — she was the other mother of 5 daughters on the same block in Parma Hts. Our Moms — Mrs. Van and Mrs. Czech — were SuperMoms! Please accept heartfelt sympathies for the loss of your Mom on behalf of my Mom and my 4 sisters.
    Love, Chris Czech Tirpak.
