HISTORYLAND HELPER WILL BE MISSED

To the Editor:

When June Edmonds passed away March 3, the Historyland Community Workshop lost a longtime and beloved member. Although health had prevented June from participating in Workshop activities for several years, her presence was always hovering in the background. She has shared recipes, donated much money and materials to the group, had taken some of the mystery out of baking for a few of us and had been a great and true friend to many. She will be greatly missed, but surely not forgotten.
