I have many GOOD memories of Fanny Lou, starting 70 years ago. My father, Dr. W. E. Welbourn, did veterinary work on her family farm. I would often go with dad and so enjoyed her mother Martha's cooking, her beautiful dolls, swimming in their cement horse/cow trough, and staying all day. I liked talking with Fanny in later years.
While working in future years at the Winchester Post Offi e, I was surprised to have John from CA as a customer! It was fun reminiscing.
My sincere sympathy to all her family.......
