  1. I am sorry for your loss. I just found this listing. I am the daughter of John W. and Edna J. Austin, who knew your husband very well….they played golf with him at Race Brook Golf Course.

  2. My sympathies go out to you today as you mourn the death of your husband. Know that others are thinking of you. I was your student at Dunbar Hill School, 8th grade in the first graduating class from the new school. Jean
