What a great lady she was, always thinking of others. I knew her first as a realtor when I worked at Farmers state Bank of Palestine. She was the one responsible for getting the First Time Homebuyer Loan approved and available in Crawford County. She saw a need and worked hard to get that program going. She is also responsible for may of the businesses coming to the county, but mostly she was know for her kindness and consideration of others. Later she gave me the opportunity to join the real estate firm that she started with Char Harvey. She was a lady that I admired very much. My condolences to the family. She will be greatly missed.
