Sergie retired from St. Mary's hospital. Sergie was a true Fisherwoman, casting a line just like her mother before her. She spent many days in the Blue Mountains and Bennington Lake fishing. She enjoyed baking, making jelly and apple butter for her family. Anyone that went to visit always left with a little love in a jelly jar.

Many people say there is nothing like a mother's love, and they are right. Our mother was a wonderful person who showed love to everyone she came in contact with. She was caring and beautiful inside and out. She loved life, her family, and her friends.
