    I met Mrs. Kathleen several times but heard about her regularly. I worked with Mr. Herbert at Doc Turners grocery back in the butcher section. He spoke of her and the girls nearly everyday. I know she will be missed by those who knew her personally. My wife and I extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to the entire family.
