Janice - and family .... Albertine ( Mrs. Savoie to me ) was a loving Mother, wife, grandmother, great grandmother! Her gentle, calm voice would always make me feel so welcomed into your household. What a wonderful woman - so devoted to her family. May her memories keep all of you close, and may she watch over you all, from her special spot in heaven❣️

Dear Savoie and Desormeaux families,

Murray & I extend our deepest sympathy on the loss of your loved one, Albertine. She was my cousin on my mother's side (Irene Kowalczak) of the family. We moved to Florida from Goetzville, MI in 2013. I can still remember visiting the old farm in Keldan. May she rest in peace.
Sincerely, Murray & Joan Bryant
