Mary Jo, Patti, Barbara and Jay, As I think of your Mother Martha, so many fond memories of her flash through my mind. The years of your family living in East End Canonsburg, raising children, the love she had for your Dad and above all hitting all the Bingos together in Canonsburg and the surrounding area. She was admired by everyone she met and always had a kind word about people. Rest In Peace my friend Agnes Bevec
