To Sherry and Family, Deane and Warren were the best neighbors one could ask for at our camp on Cold Stream and we were always happy to see you and Peter and family when you visited. She was delightful and very proud of her family and their accomplishments. Please accept our condolences for your loss.

We are so sorry to hear of Deanne's passing. She use to working in the mill with my Mom. She was so loved in town. I remember, after being away from Mattawamkeag for some 40 years, the first Sunday at church when we had moved back, she came up to us and welcomed us "back home". So very sorry for your loss Sherry..
