To Rhea's daughters and family my name is Jody. Many years ago myself and my Dad used to do her lawn, shrubs and snow on Clay Ave. Every year she gave me a Christmas card with 20.00 . I never forgot her kindness and how nice she and Harold were to work for . I visited her at Elan Gardens and the Jewish Home when I could and would have been at her graveside service but was unaware she died until afterward. Dad and I are very sorry for your loss. May God bless her.
