Weremember Ronnie fondly from our days of going to senior citizens together. As her eyesight failed when you spoke to her she would have to ask who you were. We drove her home many many times as she used to walk over to the meetings. She was Avery outgoing ,friendly woman , who would always ask o put up a. Republican sign on her lawn ,back when Croton had a functioning republican party.
