March is just a week away. Other than a freak snow storm or two winter is about over. Won’t be too long now until the robins return for the summer. I will be watching for the rose breasted grosbeaks to return awhile during their annual migration further north.
SYMPATHY Sincere sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Ida “June” Costlow who passed away last week. June was really fond of her large extended family and very much enjoyed the well organized family reunion held at her home each year. I was always amazed how active she was for her advanced age. She loved her church (St. Luke’s) and her family and will be missed by all.
Sympathy also is extended to the family of Frank Chislow who also recently passed away. Frank resided in Gallitzin but was born and grew up in Lilly. He was a WW2 Army veteran.
