Due to current circumstances a private funeral and entombment at St. Mary's Cemetery, with only the immediate family present, was held on Saturday, May 23, 2020.

I am so very sorry, Estelle ("Miss Gillotte"), to know your mom is no longer with you. How can anyone forget her presence, along with your dad's, at Alice's? She was special, and she was sweet. Please take care. Michael Fospero
