Dear Kay, Jean, Elaine and families, This dear lady has been a part of my life since sixth grade. I'm so very grateful I got to visit with her on that spectacular 100th birthday celebratory week. She was lively, fun and full of stories that I dearly enjoyed. What a worker she was; so ahead of her time and a role model for women in agriculture. I know she'll be dearly missed. With many memories, my love and sympathy to you all. My sincere sympathy, Connie
