The body will be taken to the Clarence Slowey home in Mayfield Tuesday and rosary will be said there Tuesday evening at 8:30.  Funeral services will be 9:30 a.m., Wednesday from St. Columba church with the Rev. Fr. O'Conner officiating.  Burial, in charge of Kabeiseman-Donohoe morticians, will be in the Mayfield cemetery.

Always poignant. Seems like you're doing a lot to further your grandfather's research. She died just shortly after VE Day. I hope she was aware of it with her long illness.
