Magdalene was a gem of a person. Through my young life and adulthood, the Tatters were good friends of our family, and we spent many memorable times together, some of them water-skiing and ice-skating.
Magdalene became my own friend as time went on, always gracious, and interested in conversation.
In the past few years, while she was a resident in Copley, I enjoyed many visits with her. Her bright smile and appreciative attitude were truly inspirational. She will be dearly missed.
Love and prayers to Debbie, John, Collin, and all extended family.

When we first came to Brown St in 1960 your parents had us for Sunday dinner. Your mother introduced us to acorn squash and I still think of her every time that I fix it. Also I was impressed with her tea cup collection. I started a small collection of my own. We have kept in contact all of these years and had many good times together after our husbands died. With deepest sympathy.
