IN MEMORIAM: ENA PATRICIA (PADDY) SAPER

Ena Patricia (Paddy) Saper departed this life Aug 12, 2013 to be with our mother, father and brothers, Jimmy and Bobby. It has been a long sad year without her especially for her many close loving friends and family, near and far and so many others that her life embraced (Church, golf, travel, bridge, really too numerous to mention). So often many would fondly remember how she could regale them with her enormous capacity of relating hilarious and whimsical stories, a truly rare gift given to few.
