mother died after a long struggle with heart disease and diabetes. "My mother was a
remarkable woman, full of life, the kind of person who organized neighborhood clean-up
drives and created park events for children to keep them busy in the summers. When she
became ill, she took it as another challenge.  Applying her characteristic vigor, she
eventually served as a patient member of the Board of Kansas Medical Center.  Her  death
