    Anthony Erit Marchani (Dutch was my nickname and Patsy called me Dutchie) says:
    The Marchani, Kirker and Yost families all lived together in a hugh house in McMechen, WV with my paternal grandma for about 11 years. From about age 5-16 I grew up with my cousin Patsy. She was 15 years older than me and was often the baby sitter for all us younger kids. She loved decorating for Christmas and especially enjoyed putting the Christmas tree on a platform and setting up my Lionel train set with a village of houses, people, trees etc in the middle of the tracks. I often helped her with the set up and enjoyed the whole experience.

    It was a true pleasure to work with Patsy for many years at the Bingo's in Benwood. She was a worker for the Benwood Fire Department, St. James and John's School and St. James and John's Church. She was a hard worker and a great friend. She will be missed by so many.
