Longtime Ovid organist eyes retirement

Patricia Guinan has been the organist at Holy Cross Church in Ovid for the past 48 years. Playing both the pipe organ and the newer electric organ, Guinan provides the authentic church sound that parishioners have come to love. Now 81, Guinan is ready to retire and enjoy Sunday-morning Mass from the pew instead of behind the keyboard. (Courier video by Kevin Rivoli)

Pat, It's good to see you. You remind me of your mother with your beautiful white hair. Forty-eight years! You've served God well. There had better be a special place in heaven for you. Wishing you the best. Mary
