Avonne showed me what it was to be a good wife and mother - loving, caring, and giving. She would be amused to know that a few of her recipes are still in my regular rotation. Praying for comfort and peace for her family and friends.

I just lost my best friend of 70+ years! Avonne and I met at North Dallas H.S. our Freshman year. She and I took several fun trips together before we were married, and the four of us then enjoyed traveling together after our marriages. Both of our husbands enjoyed playing golf. I was Avonne's Maid of Honor and she was my Matron of Honor. We stayed very close after our marriages, and took several nice trips together before our children were born. We remain close to this day! I loved Avonne like a sister; and I shall always miss her!
