    I am astounded to see this. I so wish I had known. We just lost Dad two days ago, and I was trying to find Chetta. I loved her. As a child she did my hair, she was the best niece to Mom and Dad. Both she and Brenda suffered through me playing their records when they were teens. I was a junior bridesmaid in her wedding. Beautiful lady!!! I am so saddened and sorry!! Carolyn Keeney Stotelmyer
