Mrs. Elizabeth Hyler Addy

My sincere love and condolences to Sheila, Claire, Lisa and families. Mrs. Addy was especially dear to me, and I will miss her very much. I have many wonderful memories of my younger years growing up across the street and visiting the whole family. In the past years we kept in touch and had many fun conversations. She had a great since of humor and kept me updated on the big events in the family. I will treasure those calls.
It also will stay in my memory, and I am forever grateful, of how kind she was in friendship to my own mother. I remember once I was talking to my Mom on the phone and she seemed anxious to get off...I asked her if she needed to get off the phone, and she said, "Yes, because I am going to play cards with Mrs. Addy soon." Okay, I then realized I shouldn't call anytime near when they played cards, which was very often!!
I will always admire Mrs. Addy's many accomplishments and especially her strength of character through difficult times. She will never be forgotten and will lovingly remain in my heart.
