Rest easy Beatrice. My dad and I worked with her in Prothonotary. She was always so gracious to me and easy to talk to. I had a interview in Philadelphia once (back in 1987 or so) and had I had no idea where I was going and she was kind enough to go with me. I know how my dad relied upon her (and Theresa’s) title searching assistance. Sympathies to all her family, I am sure she will be greatly missed.

Janice thank you so much for sharing that story 😘 My sister Lynne was at the Philadelphia Art Institute at that time so she knew her way around Philly! Your Dad & my Mom were great friends! I remember them celebrating their birthday lunches together! They’re both in a better place 🙏. God Bless Them 😘
