Mrs. Canavan, I remember you as one of the sweetest and kindest "block mother" to any one of 50 kids who grew up on your block! I have fond memories of my youth, and you were definitely part of that. Enjoy your reunion with your son and Jesus!

Mrs. Canavan, you cannot be gone! You are way too young- in looks and spirit. Your smile and sweetness will forever be remembered. You were one of our “other mothers”. We were so blessed to grow up on the block we did with you and all of our neighbors. You are reunited with your son and our Lord. May you Rest In Peace. Love, Mary Schuberth Restko
