Thank you for this link, Sooby. I had heard about her death a few weeks ago, but I hadn't seen this article. She sounds like a fascinating woman.

She does sound fascinating. It would have been interesting to meet her, although seemingly she wasn't overly friendly unless she took a shine to someone!
