I had the privilege of riding to work at Key with Gerea. Hard to believe it has been 50ish years ago. Learned a lot from her. She loved and was so very proud of Bobby, Doug and Mary Ann. Enjoyed those stories so much and spending the time together. Jane (Welch at the time), Lillian Arterburn, Gladys Hunt, Gerea Turner, Pearline Hunt and myself at various times were in the car with Gerea. (Probably left out somebody) Lot of funny things happened during those rides. Once noticed from the backseat Jane and Gerea both had their heads under the dash trying to determine what was wrong with the car heater. Then there was the time with 5 of us in the car, not a one of us could budge the lug bolts to change a tire. Thankfully some young man came along and helped us get back on the road. Thankful for those memories and sorry for your loss.Elizabeth Ann (Arterburn) Woosley
