Diana & Tammy - Sorry - I am late with this post, but I just saw your Mom's obituary. My grandma, Dot Peck briefly shared a room with your mom in the Wapello nursing home. My grandma passed away 2 - or is it 3? years ago, so I hadn't visited with your mom much since then. But I always enjoyed my visits with her - she was a bright & pleasant lady who was very proud of both of you. Sorry for your loss. Dawn Wagner
