Memories Timeline


  1. So sorry for the loss of Carol, she was wonderful sister-in-law and we will miss her dearly. Carol is free of pain and enjoying the company of Debbie once again….God bless Brownie and Sammy….

  2. Sissy will be greatly missed. I know she is in a better place and with her daughter again and there will be no more pain and confusion for her. My heart and prayers go out to the people she leaves behind like her wonderful husband and son who were right by her side through the last few difficult years. Rest In Peace sissy you are deeply loved.

  3. My sister was always there for me when I was growing up. Being 5 1/2 years my senior, I valued h

  4. My sister was always there for me when I was growing up. Being 5 1/2 years my senior, I valued her opinion and could always confide in her things I wouldn’t tell anyone else. She was my best friend. Rest in peace dear sister.

  5. My Aunt Carol (“Sissy”) lived a long life filled with love, family, joy and…yes, deep loss and sorrow. Even though her later years became cloudy, she fought hard to the end and leaves us with so many precious memories. I will miss her very much, but I have this hope: We will meet again on that Glorious Day and will be with the Lord forever in heaven where “He will wipe away every tear from our eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4
    God of all comfort, wrap your loving arms around Brownie, Sammy and all those who loved her dearly.

  6. My beautiful, loving Sister. You were my rock, my best friend and my second Mom. We will all miss you so much, but it makes me smile to know you are with Debbie and our Lord. We will see you again when God calls us home. Until then we know you will be watching over us & we will do our best to make you proud! I love you!

  7. Sissy was so important to me while I was growing up. She always lit up a room and seemed to be so full of life and was such an influence on me. I am so very thankful for all the time I got to spend with her as a child. I loved her very much, and though I am sorry that she is gone from us, I know she is in a better place and at peace and with Debbie. Our prayers go out to Sammy and Brownie (my Uncle Bubba).

  8. To Sammy, Brownie, and other relatives:
    I have fond memories of Mrs. Scamardo (we weren’t allowed to call adults by their first names!!) at OFA, Deady and Milby functions. Always there for her kids and acted as a second mother to many of us. I pray for strength, understanding and peace for each of you during this time. Maybe she will see my dad up there after she holds her beloved daughter. Love to all

  9. I met Mrs Scamardo many years ago at their home in Livingston. She was so sweet and made me feel at home. My thoughts and prayers are with you Sammy and Mr. Scamardo. Rest In Peace Mrs Scamardo you will be missed.
