Beyond shocked when I saw the news on Mrs. McCrickard. I knew her vaguely when I dropped in one day to visit her after an accident. It developed into a weekly visit that I really looked forward to. We had a lot of mutual friends. She was a neat lady. I miss her.

This is Brooke, the grand daughter of Gladys Moore Ashworth (sister of Ethel Moore Newman) and Berkley Ashworth. I spoke to Jeanne late September right before and after my uncle Ralph Ashworth passed (9/23/19). Jeanne was Ralph's favorite relative and they spoke often. Jeanne tried to visit Ralph at the hospital, but sadly he passed minutes before she was to arrive. I had a lovely conversation with her several times after his passing. I wish we could be there but sadly I reside on the west coast. From our family to yours we send our condolences and may she rest in peace. I have attached a picture my mom saved and attached to the family tree on ancestry.com. Hugs and prayers to you all.
