Mark Memorial Funeral Services Staff send our condolences to family and friends.

From: Gloria Hunt
Relation: she was my good friend for many years...56 years.

Patty and family, Cathleen and family and John and Tom, Emily was my friend from the first day I met her when her family were moved into Kimberley. She was a brave kid then, and a brave woman for the rest of her adult life. She had a remarkable memory for all of us, we had many good talks in the last year (almost) and I would have loved to have more time with her, but she was suffering, and is now finally free from pain and suffering. I am sorry for you loss.
I will be unable to attend because of a back injury, but my thoughts are with all of you.
Gloria Hunt (Rogers)
