Dad Ron, Gina, Maria, Ronda, Vince, Lora and Ronnie….The Williams family of Lancaster would like to send our blessings to you and yours.  Your mom was a true saint and I know she will be missed dearly.  The love goes all the way back to Fulton street where it all started for us at St. Anthony’s.  I can still remember the flavors and the aromas coming from that kitchen.  OMG, she could cook!  Wishing nothing but the best in the future for you all.

Ron, I am so very sorry for your loss.  My memories of Marlene go back to my childhood. We were best friends and inseparable all through school.  She was indeed a best and true friend.  We laughed when she told me you two were getting married and that now we would be cousins. I will always have memories of the beautiful red head that had a kind and loving heart and all the fun we had growing up just houses apart.  Please accept my sincerest and heartfelt condolences.  I am sorry I will not be able to attend her service but you both will be in my prayers.
