Mary ellen known as Peachie to me was my moms best friend. I remember when we were little they would take us places in the car. going to the beach and the butcher store! She always welcomed me when I came to her home.
I will always remember her kindness to me. She was a truly nice, caring, and funny person. I am so very sorry for your loss.
She will be missed.
