So sorry to hear of her passing. She was a friend of my parents and I used to babysit her children. I also did a beauty show for her (she did my hair) when I was about 15 or 16. Sweet lady and the last time I saw her was at my moms memorial in 2004. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. Judy (Hawver) Towers
