A real mainstay in my growing up years. A great Mom and she sure did love Ed. Her kids and mine played together and the older girls babysat. Great Pond Rd. will not be the same. I loved when she would say Yoo hoo when greeting or beckoning someone. She was a classy fun lady and interested in all. Will miss her presence. Rest with Jesus Nancy.
