Her husband Murray was my first cousin. I’ll fondly remember our visits back to Pennsylvania and Rices Landing to see them. She was an extraordinary person and loved her family so dearly. I was so shocked and saddened to hear of her passing. I’m sorry now I didn’t try harder to get together with her as she had suggested not too many years ago. A life lesson.....don’t put the important things off.
