I worked closely with Mrs. Hollinger for several years, while she served as secretary to the Board of Governors at Coral Ridge Yacht Club. She was a wonderful lady, and I am sorry to hear of her passing. The last time I saw her was at Poverello Thrift Shop where we both liked to scoop up treasures.

Now I know why she didn't return my call when I called to check on her because of the pandemic.

I will miss her!
