  • As a fellow member of the PS duPont HS Class of 1952 (and NOT 1951as stated in the obit), I only knew Beryl slightly back then, but I clearly remembered her vivacity as a classmate in a semester-long special psychology group. Much more recently, during the past 10 years or so during her Florida time, we became close email buddies. I mourn her passing greatly and may she be Resting in Peace.

  • Thanks Sue & Buddy …. nice that you have memories of “back then” xo

  • Thank you both for your thoughts.. I know mom loved working with you…I believe Marleen forwarded you the service information. Hope you can make it.. come prepared to share funny stories! Colleen

  • Bob,
    Thank you for your kind note & memories of Mom. I remember her telling me about her e-mail buddy!


  • I was very saddened to read of your mother’s passing, Colleen. She was the most vibrant and spark-
    ling woman I ever knew. Never saw without a twinkle in her eye and fun on her mind. She made quite a few of my years @ AIDI more fun!!! Prayers and blessing to you and your families. Leni from ACC, AIDI
