  • Clara, and family, you are in our prayers. An era has come to a close and it is hard. You have our sympathy. Your mom did so many interesting things we were unaware of. And all while raising a big family! Quite a lady. With our love, Cindy and Mark

  • Clara, we want to extend our sympathy on the passing of your Mother. We are thinking about you at this sad time. The DeBaltzo’s – Don, Eleanor, Doug and Dennis

  • Marie was the best mother-in-law anyone could ever hope for. I was in town last week and stopped at her house to see her not knowing she was staying was Cheryl. I’m sorry to hear of her passing, I know she will be missed greatly. My sympathies to all of the Thompson family.

  • My condolences to Marie’s family. I was hired at Mansfield Hospital-Personnel Department about 2 years (1968-2009) after Marie was hired. I would stop by Medical Records Dept. on occasion and remember meeting her a few times. She was always pleasant with a nice sense of humor. It was an honor to know her. She’s at peace now after 97 years and I know she was grateful for having daughter Cheryl to care for her at her home in Shelby (my home town). Not an easy task for sure! Blessings!

  • We want to express our condolences to you, Cheryl, and your family. We will not be able to attend the calling hours as we are in Florida.
