  1. I met Marylu and Marion 36 years ago. She was always very sweet and friendly. Used to see her walking downtown a Wellsville and in the hospital cafeteria. Wondered what happened to her, because I had not seen her for years.

  2. I remember Marylu coming in Giant Food Mart and I'd wait on her in the deli. She was shared a room in the nursing home with my mom. She was always a joy to talk with.
