Nancy L. Starkweather

Joslyn of Montour Falls, and his children, daughters Kim Joslyn and Michelle Bump of Montour Falls, and sons James (Shannon) Joslyn of Beaver Dams, and Anthony Joslyn of Montour Falls; sister, Susan (Roger) Ferretti of Kirkville, NY; step sister, Connie (Wayne) Emerson of Tennessee; and half-sister, Pat (Leslie) Hill of Delaware; 13 grandchildren; 13 great grandchildren; several nieces, nephews, cousins and very special friends.
