This is a message for Betty Jean in heaven, and for Jim, not doing well right now, and the two lovely daughters Jodi and Julie. This is Suzanne Schiavone White, daughter of Joe and Madge Schiavone, of Redgranite, PoySippi, Oshkosh, and Milwaukee Wisconsin. I am a niece step nice of Antonia. I knew all of Antonias children; and Mom and Dad, and my brother father Bob and I, really, really loved Betty Jean and Jim! After my father passed mom was so very lonely but she kept working in Oshkosh and I clearly recall how absolutely excited and delighted she would get when she ran into Betty Jean and Jim-- in the department store, or pharmacy or grocery store, etc. They would hug, laugh and talk for hours! And... And were annually excited and thrilled with Betty Jean and Jim's Christmas letter! A beautiful couple. God bless Betty Jean and Jim. We pray for your father. Thank you for being there for them. Love Suzanne

Dear Murray Family, We were saddened to hear of Betty's passing. My father, Pat (wife, Carol) Salamone was a cousin to Antonia (Salamone) Leone. Thru the years, my wife and I have met Jim and Betty at various family functions. After my mother passed away, we attended the Redgranite High School reunion as guests of my Dad where we had also visited with Betty and Jim. Our deepest sympathy to all of you.
