  1. Annamarie, Adam and Gretchen,
    We want to extend our most sincerest sympathies to all of you for the loss of your mother. As you know, she was a very special lady. She was our first church friend after we arrived in AZ in 2004. Through the 10+ years we lived there, we prayed together, we laughed together and we cried together. I talked to your mother the day that she went to the “Banner Hilton” (as she called it) this last time. She was very tired and I could tell her body just couldn’t fight back anymore. We love your mother and we will always remember her in our prayers. She is at peace and is with God in eternal glory. God bless all of you as you grieve. But know that your mother wants you to continue to live life to its fullest just like she did! We will be with you in spirit on Friday. May Mary Frances rest in God’s peace.

  2. So sorry for loss. Mary Francis will always be in our prayers. Love the Czocher and Castady families.

  3. Annamarie, Adam and Gretchen,
    Kaj called us with the sad news of your mom’s death. She was such a special person who always brought laughter and joy into our lives! One moment we’ll always remember was back in 1997 when our younger son, Dave, was being married. Jeannie and Kaj were living near us in Harrisburg PA and they and your mom were invited to the wedding. Kaj told us that your mom couldn’t attend the wedding because it was too far to travel. Two nights before the wedding, the doorbell rang and the woman at the door said she was collecting money for the Polish Relief Agency. It took us a moment to realize what was happening, but you can imagine the hugs and laughter that ensued. I still have the pic of Mary and me bear-hugging! Such a sweetheart!
    Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you and we hope your lifetime of cherished memories will sustain you at this difficult time.
    With our love and sympathy,
    Dick and Cathy

  4. Mary was a dear friend of my sister, Barbara Conklin Williamson, for many years from St. John Vianney Parish and I had the pleasure of getting to know her on several occasions. Mary was so friendly, cheerful and helpful to others and a truly lovely lady. I admired her dedication to her faith and her commitment to the Oblates Monastery. I offer my deep sympathy to Mary’s family at this time of loss. May she rest in Peace!

  5. You were much more than these few words above..As I remember you in my prayers today marking your birthday 2/12/23 I will always remember a loving and caring individual. I tried to visit your grave site but the info I have is incorrect. I know that you are in the loving arms of Jesus. God Bless You always.
