In 2008, I moved from Milwaukee to our hometown, Cedar Rapids. I'm most thankful that during those 8 years I was able to drive to Muscatine several times a year to have lunch with my sister, Joan - places by the river were our favorite. Now, almost 10 years later, I'm the age she was in 2008. How fast that time went! Carol Nilles

McAreavy family, I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. My Mom and I visited with Joan a few times while she was at Lutheran Homes. She was always happy and fun to talk to. Prayers for you all!
What a great family she leaves behind. John was a teacher of mine in the fifties and brother Gregg was a friend of he and your mother. Our condolences to all of you!

So sorry for your loss. May God bless your family during this time.
Our family too was neighbors back in the day. Many memories of the family. So sorry for your loss.
So many years go by as we live our lives and then you hear a name and the flood of fond memories all come back to you. God bless all of you and thank you for letting me share some of your family fun times. You are an amazing family with your wonderful Mom in the center.
The McAreavy family was such a big part of my childhood as we were neighbors on Newell Ave. So many wonderful memories. Sending lots of love and hugs to the family. Thanks for letting me share in the fun of your awesome gang. Blessings....
