  1. I have very fond memories of kind Mrs Horvath from long ago when I lived on Lola and New streets. John and I were friends going to Fairfield Prep; not only did he drive me to school but soundly beat me at board games regularly. I’m sorry for your loss and have asked my grandson, a senior at University of Notre Dame, to light a candle at it’s famous grotto in her memory.
