Our deepest condolences to the cousins Gloria, Butchy, Duane, Norman, Lena, Marlene, Yvette, Clara and Little Erne, to my Mom, my Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends and Family of the Cooper, McGowan and Miller families.
Aunt Erne was such a loving person who would help anyone, my Mom always took us to Aunt Erne’s, and when I went in the Army and I would come home I always made a stop over Aunt Erne’s when I would be in town. The last time I was home and I went over as soon as I went in the room and she saw me her face lit up with a smile. Lena, and Marlene was at the hose taking care of here and sat and held here had talking to here for about a half hour and she smiled the entire time.
Aunt Erne lived a long full life, her legacy to our family is testimony to how strong the family is, her memory will live on always much love Aunt Erne.
