Sincere sympathy to the family of Marialice McElwain, Mother/Grandmother. I have known her since Wayne Twp school days and she was always sweet and kindhearted to everyone. May her warm spirit live on in all of you... She was a true classy lady! God bless each of you!

I am so sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. I'll always remember her beautiful smile and how it always reached her eyes. It's funny how we, Borter children, all knew her from Wayne school before we knew and became friends with her children. She was a lovely and kind person and I was blessed to have known her. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
