Deepest sympathy from a member of Bunny Schwenn's extended family. My Mom, Burnette Mickelson Johnson, was a first cousin. Her mother was the former Rose Schwenn Mickelson. We always enjoyed seeing Clarice as a waitress through the years. May she rest in peace after a long life.

You have my prayers and deepest sympathies. She was a great friend while I lived in the area. I truly enjoyed being around her. I wished I would have had half her ambition.
