My condolences to the Bartkowski family, who have never met me.
I am related through Julia , died 2/16/1967 who’s mother and my grandmother were sisters. I had a close relationship with the Bartkowski family as I was growing up. I am 91 years old and have many memories of time spent with them at their home on Third St. I’m sure Betty and I had been present many times at the family gatherings for funerals, weddings, anniversaries. My mind is still intact and I would like to exchange some of our genealogy information with you if you so desire. Margie Ragone can vouch for me. Your mother/grandmother/great grandmother sounds like a wonderful per son. Rita Lawrence
