Peter and Jane, Condolences from my parents Eymard & Phyllis Thibodeau, as well as me and my siblings. We all have great memories of your Mom, from the 15 years we were your neighbors. Then in later years, so many times she took good care of us at The Chateau.
Fond memories from Gabrielle Thibodeau Cunningham.

As a child, I spent many times at the Collura residence on Jennings Road. The pool, playing with Jane and Peter and the warmth of Uncle Peter and Aunt Phyllis are vivid in my memories. As an adult, I would see Phyllis at the Chateau and she would still great me with a big smile and warm hug. My sincere condolences to Jane and Peter.

My thoughts and prayers to the family through this sadness. You were such a sweet, funny, and creative woman, Will always remember our many years working together. One of my greatest memories was you pushing your glasses down on your nose with that stare and marching into the dining room to see who was doing what they weren't supposed to be doing. You really were a cupcake, not the sergeant that I called you! You were so creative and talented. RIP ANGEL, you got your wings.
