The memorial Mass will be held at 11 a.m. Jan. 20, at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, with Father John LaSuba presiding.

She lived there until 1940. She married Joseph J. Quiter in Elmhurst on July 23, 1938. After graduating from York High School in Elmhurst, she had her own "School of Dancing" for five years. She and Joe moved to Milwaukee in 1940, and stayed until 1946, including the time while Joe was on active duty in the military. She worked for A.O. Smith of Milwaukee during that time. She and Joe moved to Rochester in 1946, where they raised their family. She was active in St. Francis Rosary Society, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and, for 35 years, Saint Marys Hospital Auxiliary.
