There are no words to describe Aunt Hunia. She was a beautiful Lady with a sweetness and grace that touched so many lives. Thank you Aunt Hunia for the patience when I stopped by the Church and made some perogi’s. You & Aunt Olga made me feel like I knew what I was doing but I figured you fixed them after I left. Thank you for awesome memories and the Love you exhuberated each & every time we were together. You always found the GOOD in everyone and left an everlasting mark of joy with so many people.

Worked with Anne at OVMC and she was a delight. My mom was Polish, & your mom and I would share stories, sayings, and Polish recipes. We just lost our Mom in August and even though she was 99 I miss her everyday. Live on in her memory and continue those Polish traditions and recipes.
Sympathy to all, Marie Chute
