Condolence & Memory Journal

Somya, we were so surprised to hear of your mom's passing. We heard about it at church. She looked so wonderful when we last saw her. She was a lovely lady. Mom (Fran from Bickford) will so miss seeing you (her Jenny look-alike). Our sincere condolences. Shirley and Lee Walat, (Fran's daughter).

Somya, I'm saddened about your mom leaving this old world behind, but, I know she's in a wonderful place walking that street of gold. We love her a lot and enjoyed going to visit with her every week that we possibly could. She was the sweetest, kindest and caring person and she loved doing things to help others. We're sure going to miss her. Our prayers are with you and the family and her sisters. We'll keep you in our prayers.

LOVED this precious lady! Former business student but honestly more like friends back then. I've included a picture of her on a trolley in San Antonio, TX where she accompanied us for a business competition. I often spent many many spare hours hanging out in the business office with her and Mr. G. Her daughter was always the apple of her eye for sure. I remember loading up my truck and helping move her from her house in Aurora to her house in Prestbury all those years ago. Later in life I would see her at Colonial at breakfast time where we would briefly catch up. Such a class act! Mrs. Didos' absence from this world is a true loss for all left behind. But what a legacy she left!

Margaret and Jan,
So sorry to hear about Mary's passing. She was such a joy to listen to and talk to at West High. She inspired so many with her approach to kids. Our prayers are with you both and the rest of the family.
