I remember loving release time Bible classes with her at the Springboro United Church, when I was in 5th and 6th grades at the old elementary school. You have my sympathy at this sad time.

My condolences to Mother Rebecca Lash and the family of Eloise Henry. My regrets that I am unable to attend the funeral due to clerical work out of the area. May Eloise rest in peace.
