So sorry to hear this .My thought’s and prayer’s are with the family.
She was a old friend of my fathers , he would delver race info to all local speedshops for her . On rain outs she would call him and tell him so he wouldn’t make the trip. All through the 70’s they worked together he was upset to hear the news everytime we went to the track he would ask some about her right up to the end. Brian M.
