The final month of 2010 has come to an end, so we take this day to hold in our memory, those that have left us too soon. This month we remember:

John Bishop
Nancy Lee Codere
Geraldine Doyle
Gerald Hyrkas
Major Glenn Tapio (Retired USAF)
Servicemen and women who have given their all

As is our tradition with this remembrance day, we invite you to add the names of folks that you'd like to recall on these pages. Special thanks to Joe Kirkish for the beautiful winter sunset, in memory of our loved ones and friends.

The name of Geraldine Doyle may not be recognized, but the posters that she inspired have appeared on these pages before. This month her family announced that Geraldine passed away at the age of 86, one of the original Rosie the Riveters.

In memory of Mrs. Josephine Kangas Raisanen who lived a long and rich life. She was the second youngest and last living daughter of the eight Kangas women.

Aunt Josie, as we knew her, was a polite, intelligent, and a wonderful conversationalist. Possessing an excellent memory, she became the family historian.

Aunt Josie passed away quietly at the age of 97 last November.

My dear brother Allen Paul McMurphy passed away December 28th. He worked at the hospital in Calumet a few years back & was so happy when he got the assignment because he loved the Keweenaw so much. Our hearts are heavy with the loss, but we are rejoicing that he has been released. Godspeed Paul. We love you.
