Mom was the center and heart of our family. She answered to many names but her favorite was Nana (Nanzo, Winter, Mommy’s Nanny, White hair Nan and Nana Clause). She loved to brag about her grand and great-grandbabies to anyone who would listen. Mom was a great listener too…always welcoming, accepting and praying for those in need. Her prayer list was endless, She enjoyed bowling, “Fat Club”, bus trips, cruises, reading and HGTV.
Thank you to Doctors Cotter, Duffy, Chawluk, Narula and Shah for their exceptional and compassionate care. A special thanks to Mom’s angels from Schuylkill Home Care.
