She was such a wonderful person with a great memory for past history that she shared with me. I treasure the time we spent together at home, beauty shop,Steak and Shake and the drives when she educated me on Greenview and the local area. I will always remember her with love and know she is with Bill ,Donald, Greg and her parents in heaven. .
