“She was a mom to everyone”
This is so absolutely true. I’ve known “mom” for over 20 years now, and no matter how much time passes between getting to see her- she’ll always say to me “ Call me mom!!!” when I’d call her Mrs. Koneski.
Her house was always such a sanctuary for us girls growing up. I used to have sleepovers with Ashley there when I was young and now that I have a young child of my own- he was always invited over to watch the Memorial Day Parade every year.
She will be missed immensely. Much love to the three daughters she raised beautifully.
Jonnean was the youngest of 8 children and my little sister. She followed me everywhere as a child and her memory will continue to follow me for the rest of my life. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, wife, sister, and friend. Our childhood was a happy one and our parents taught us all we needed to know about love of family. She has three beautiful girls who are all like daughters to me. I have to say that for much of my life she drove me crazy, but I would not trade a minute of it for the world. I wish her family peace in this most difficult time. I hope they know that I love them all as I loved my sister and I will always be there for them. Until we meet again little sister fly with the angels and soar with the butterflies.
I love you to the moon and back Mom. To the stars and beyond. Forever and forever. I'll miss you every minute of every darn day. Thank you for everything you've ever done for me, Ralph, our girls and our family. Fly high Momma and give everyone a hug for me. Keep watch over our girls too. Hugs.
