I was Yvonne Curtis Ingram's aunt, Anne Nowlin Ingram.. I remember Uncle Hugh and Aunt Omi, and Dorothy had her hair. Yvonne died on October 15 here in S.C.She would have been so happy to see this obituary and the pictures. I never saw Dorothy, but I'm sure she had characteristics of her sweet mother and daddy.
