I never had the opportunity to meet Aunt Ezy, but my father, Kendall Bass, and his wife Doris, enjoyed spending time with her. Sincere condolences to everyone close to her.

Mrs. Bass was my wonderful mother-in-law. I was married to her daughter, Jance, for 47 years until she passed away last August. Still grieving over the loss of my soul-mate, it has been a pleasure visiting Mrs. Bass weekly. Always looked forward to her welcoming smile and big hug. During the years that I knew her, she and her family always made me feel like a treasured member of the family. She was a brilliant lady and a joy to be around all those years. I will miss her dearly... R.I.P., my sweet mom!

Mrs. Bass was my fourth grade teacher, and she was memorable. This gentle lady taught me the multiplication tables and long division - no mean feat! I still think of her when I drive by her house on Gordon Drive. Rest well, sweet teacher.
