My deepest sympathy for the family. I have very fond memories of her and Peggy when she drove the the School bus, way back in the day. She was always very pleasant as we shared stories of our students, while waiting for school to let out. There have been so many friends and co-workers who have passed recently, so it is with a heavy heart, I pray for yet another beautiful soul, gone too soon.
