Jan. 15, 2007 Clarks Summit Lackawanna County Pennsylvania, USA
Mrs. Battersby was a sweet, friendly, lovely lady who I used to stop to talk to every morning on my way to the bus stop.
She formerly lived on the 600 block of Hunter Street in Gloucester City, NJ and had a little wolf-sable Pomeranian named Corky, a wonderful dog who had his own fan club.
