A visitation is from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17, at Stewart and Carroll Funeral Home. A second visitation is from 1 to 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 18, at Calvert-Belangee-Bruce Funeral Home in Le Roy, with a funeral service to follow immediately after.

In keeping with federal mandates due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, everyone is asked to be patient and abide by the state regulation of 25 visitors with masks allowed inside the funeral home.
