Billie was a great friend that we shared the love of golf and bowling and the great outdoors. We go back a long ways from golfing in the Copley Greens league to bowling in a two person league at Riviera. I never met anyone
so cheerful despite what all she was going through especially in the past couple of months. What a warrior! I will
miss you Billie! Love you girl!

Billie will be missed both as a friend and member of the Lafayette Lioness Lions Club. We loved her and always enjoyed being with her. She shared her egg salad recipe with me and I have had homemade pickles from her! My heartfelt sympathy to Charles and the family.
