She is still something of a mystery to me.  I have tried to find information on her family but it is somewhat scarce.  I did get the names of her parents from the funeral home that conducted her funeral services but I still don’t have proof of the relationships through any other form.  I also can’t find information on her second husband “Doc” Reid.  The “Doc” is obviously a nickname but I can’t find his real name and I can’t find the information on their marriage.  I keep trying! and trying!
