Condolence from Kathy Oprenchak (daughter of Carolyn Oswald)) on September 17th, 2016 3:32 pm

I just heard about MaryAnne’s (and Ray’s) passing. While we didn’t know Ray well, we knew MaryAnne. She was a wonderful, classy (always dressed to the 9’s) woman. Always helping at church, CWC functions, etc. She was very kind to our mother during her illness with cancer several years ago. She will be missed by many. God bless you during this difficult time. The Oswald Family
