Many years ago, two of my friends and I attended her class "Women and the Law" at WCC (back when WCC was 1 building and several trailers). She was such a good instructor and we learned so much. Later I did typing for her occasionally. I loved talking with her -- she was so direct and so common sense! And such an accomplished formidable woman. My condolences to her family - although she sure had a long productive life that you can all be proud of.
