To Mamie's Family I send our deepest sympathy. We first met Mamie & Charlie at Punky's while enjoying a fish fry. We had just built a new home in Grandview and become permanent residents of WI. This was 2004. After that I had wonderful times on the golf course with the Tuesday Morning ladies group. Always loved it when we got to play together. In 2017 we moved back to Syracuse. Enjoy your happy memories, she was a treasure.

To the family of Mamie Heath we send our deepest sympathy. She was a person who was beautiful on the inside and out . The las time we saw her was the tribute to her at the library. It was always a pleasure to see her.
I have good memories of going to the Denner farm as a boy and playing with my cousins.
Sincerely, Jim and Lucy McAllister

On behalf of the entire Bornhurst family I want to extend our sincerest sympathy to the Heath family for the loss of your mother. Mamie was a very unique person. She showed love to everyone she encountered, and they in turn showed their love for her. She left a legacy in Thousand Island Park that probably will never be replaced.
Her sincerity was genuine and she was always willing to help anyone who was hurting. However, Charley and her family always came first. After his passing she continued as best as she could, though not at her usual fast pace. Still, she loved life so much and did so many things not everyone would notice a change. It was a very sad day for all TI Parkers when she left her home in the Park and moved to a facility in Watertown where she could obtain the care and attention she deserved. She will be missed by all.
My prayers and thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
