I grew up knowing Henrietta. My family a farm family- spent time at the Lane farm, My Mom and Henrietta used to do school functions together-I remember her hunting during dear season, she was always fun and had a great laugh. Even the last few yrs. she needed the Ambulance- when I was driving, she was still such a sweet lady with a great smile. Rest in peace you were very special to us here in Ashland....
