My deepest condolences to Tiny's family. I went to school with her son Todd and have great memories of her throughout the years. She had a wonderful laugh and wore such lovely outfits! She was one of a kind and I'm sure my grandmother Romaine Warner will be waiting for her so they can gossip and drink iced tea up in the heavens.

Tiny was a special lady. When my Dad - Owen and Tiny were dating many years ago - we spent a lot of time in Parkesburg and they are all great memories of her and the family!

Sorry for your loss Deb and family! Love, Mark

Tiny was always smiling and a very sweet and caring lady. I worked with her at Ben Franklin and became friends with her over the years. My deepest sympathy to the family.

Dear Debbie and Family,

Your mom will be greatly missed by Phil and me. I have known “Tiny” all my life - I loved to stop by her Main Street home in the summer and chat with her and Jane. We had a lot of laughs as we reminisced about Parkesburg in the “good ole days!”

Your mom loved her children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved to stop in Longenecker’s and buy little cards/gifts for them on all of the holidays. Your mom had a big heart and I will always think of her whenever I drive up Main Street and pass her apartment. Prayers of peace and comfort to all of you now and in the coming weeks. There is no love like a mother’s love. 

Debbie and Phil Miller
