Aunt Mary Ellen will always hold a special place in my heart. I have so many wonderful memories from my childhood with her and Uncle Tony. She was always generous, loving, patient, and kind! Her smile and easy laughter instantly made you feel welcome in their home! She will be greatly missed! I hope she is in heaven with my father and that he has finally "caught her."

Mrs Auth Will always be remembered for her love of her family. Family then business I believe was her credo nothing got past her at the office.

I hope the Auth Family remembers the happy memories they sure knew how to have fun especially when the work was over.

God Bless you Mrs Auth thanks for the memories
