"I only knew Lana, "Strawberry", in the last few years that she was living near Charter Oak,. She often attended the C.O. Senior Center where I worked for meals and regularly joined friends at the convenience store for coffee. Such a pleasant, upbeat type of person! I was sad to hear that she had entered a nursing home and now even more sad that she is gone. At least now she has joined her husband, Bob, whom she loved so much. Our sympathy to all of her family."
