Oh my brings back many memorys.

My deepest condolences on the death of your dear mom! And grandma and great grandmother!

I went to St. Thomas the Apostle grade school with Scott (graduating class 1969)…many fond memories of the Cuddihy clan. May God our Father grant much peace and consolation to all your family….in Jesus name we pray…always thru the intercession of Our Lady Queen of Peace.
God BLESS all
Sincerely with love and prayers,

Well done good & faithful Servant,

Mrs. Cuddihy was a strong women, who knew The Lord, the Truth, and loved her Family dearly!

She was a multi-decade server at STA Church, many times “recruited” by my Mom, as Sally knew is was “simpler” just to do the work, rather than have to deal with Mary Jo!

Sally & Don were a spiritual dynamic duo at STA as they were always involved, leading, loving and modeling Our Lord’s work with humble service, and yes some fun too!

We were so blessed to share the Saint Thomas the Apostle (STA) Foundational Families of the Cuddihy’s, Roessler’s, Schneider’s, Hintze’s, DeArc Aneglo’s, Burke’s, and so many others in growing up… TOGETHER!

Our families were not only united in our faith in Christ, but my sisters also shared their schooling & lives with all of their children as well. Yes, we did see Sally at a few of my family’s celebration events, but St. Patrick Parties were the most memorable, and probably the most fun for Sally & Don… not sure if they were Irish, but they were when they left…

While it hurts to say Goodbye for now, we know that the promise of our eternal salvation will bring us all together again, to share the life, love & peace provided by Our Lord’s sacrifice.

I will always miss you calling me “Mr. Wilkinson” my whole life, but I got to be honest with you now, I always felt like I was in trouble or about to get “busted”… I’ll ask Mary or Jack about this on Friday!

Rest in Peace and God Bless you & your wonderful family!

Love always,

Chris & Laura Wilkinson

Sincere condolences from a friend!

I didn’t know Mrs. Cuddihy very well, however through her sons and the many shared stories, I had a pretty good idea of the special person she was. I have heard it said, that you can evaluate the accomplishment of a parent by measuring the content of the character of their children. Having known Scott for over 45 years, and Jack for some time, there is no doubt in my mind, that Mr. & Mrs. Cuddihy were highly accomplished people! She’ll be missed by her family, never forgotten, and always loved!

Rest in Peace Big Sal.
With Love, Jeff
