Mrs. Loughery was a lovely lady and really exemplified the meaning of community. As a secretary at Tom Baines Junior High I was lucky to have had many opportunities to chat with her and witness her kind, welcoming manner. Her sons are very much the same. My sincere condolences to the entire family, particularly Ben, Ken & Oliver.
