Aunt Bessie was a gem and wrote of her growing up years with all the traveling the family did. It is a treasure of information of the life and times of the Ragsdale's.
She lived 84 years, 1 month, 16 days before the Lord called and she answered.
Many thanks to granddaughter, Laura Lenée, for burial information.
