A precious neighbor for years and a lady of dignity whatever she was faced with . . . to the family: I’m sorry I missed your service as I don’t take the paper for the last few years . . . you will always be in my prayers and I’ll always be grateful for your mother’s gentle kindnesses to anyone who came in contact with her at any time in her life . . .my last memory was visiting her in the center and seeing her happiness with her loving companion . . .her cat.
