Maxine Tingley Condon, a resident of the Willow Point Nursing Home for many years, formerly of New Milford, passed away peacefully on Friday, October 18, 2002, surrounded by her family.

She was predeceased by her husband, William J. Condon; her beloved daughter, Ellen Marie Aldrich; her parents, Glenn and Naomi Tingley (Boppy and Nana); her sister, Eleanor.

She is survived by three daughters, Maureen Adams, Endicott, NY, Kathy and Bill Major, Florida, Roberta and Buzz Gulick, New Milford; her brother, Donald and Mildred Tingley, Binghamton, NY; ten grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews.

Maxine was an inspiration to everyone that knew her. She gave us strength, perseverance, and an outlook on life that made all our daily problems seem so trivial. She lived her life committed to her Catholic faith and an unrelenting loyalty to her family. She was our "Grandma Condon" and we loved her so. We will miss her in life, we cherish our memories of her and will forever miss those loving hugs.

Memorial services were held Tuesday, October 22, at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, Vestal, NY.

Expressions of sympathy in her memory can be made to the Willow Point Nursing Home, 3700 Old Vestal Road, Vestal, NY 13850.

A Card of Thanks in Loving Memory of Mary Marjorie Gawron

We would like to express that we appreciate everyone’s sincere acts of kindness in honoring our mother’s passing on September 25, 2002.

The entire staff of Barnes-Kasson Hospital and Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) of Susquehanna, PA, made it possible to provide Marjorie with excellent medical, physical and psychological care, as well as spiritual fulfillment. Due to all the wonderful care our mother received through Dr. DeWitt, the nurses as well as the entire staff, she managed to hold her head high with dignity and grace at SNF. Marjorie lived two years and nine months longer than she would have had otherwise, because of the dedication of these wonderful people.

Thank you to all the members of the Altar and Rosary Society of Saint John’s Church, Susquehanna, for providing food for the immediate family, as well as hosting a luncheon at Saint John’s Church Hall, Susquehanna. Our gratitude goes out to Father Charles Connor and the Hennessey Funeral Home for officiating the Mass and internment.

On behalf of the family of Mary Marjorie Gawron, we would like to thank everyone for their kind expressions of deep sympathy. To our friends, neighbors, co-workers, and the residents of SNF: thank you for all your support, flowers, cards, food, donations, and prayers in our time of need.


The Gawron and Loomis Families

I would like to personally thank my husband, Jeffrey I. Loomis, and my children, Tiffany, Krystle, and Melanie Loomis, as well as my niece and nephew, Rachel and Jeremy Gawron for their loving support.

In addition, I wish to thank my brother, John Gawron and his wife (my sister-in-law), Connie for providing loving care of Marjorie prior to her placement at Barnes-Kasson and Skilled Nursing Facility. I will be forever grateful to them both for seeing that our parents, Marjorie and Alex Gawron, are at eternal peace.

With love,

Janet M. Loomis
