I'm so very sad to hear of the passing of Mrs. Rankin. She and my parents were friends from long ago through the St. Lawrence Seaway where Mr. Rankin and my dad worked. We had many fun nights of dinner parties and hanging out in the basement of the Rankins' house with Lori, watching the Boston Celtics. I'm sure she is sadly missed by all who knew her. She was a wonderful lovely woman who was full of life. Love, Angie Rubino Ellwood.

I was so very sorry to hear of Mrs. Rankin’s passing. I came to know her several years ago while coordinating some in-home services for her when she was still living on her own. It always made my day to speak with her over the phone because she maintained a cheerful and humorous outlook on life despite dealing with many health issues. She was a wonderful lady. My deepest sympathies to the Rankin family.
