She lived to be 92! And her husband lived 6 years  more after she died. Anyway, she cracked me up when she tried to mess up the Guard's practice by blowing her whistle! She didn't do it more than that one day, but her mischievousness made us laugh! In our senior year we were able to vote for the 2 activities we wanted to do that year. We picked bowling (Del Mar Lanes) and yoga. Yoga! We were so avant-garde!
