  1. Carol Ann and I were BEST friends from Jr. High in Edmond all through high school and from then on! Jane McMinimy Peevey & Caralee Miller Shirley Holloway were part of our group & have kept up with each other ever since.

    Jane, Caralee & I were all sorry that Carol Ann did not make it up to Wichita a few years back when we had all planned to get together here. She did get to Edmond, but somehow didn’t make contact with Caralee & Jane to come on up here.

    We were all P.E.O.’s & the other 3 were pages for me when I was Oklahoma State Presideent in 1988.

    My husband, Larry, died in 2013. He and I had visited Carol Ann & Al in Memphis many years ago.

    Jane found out that Carol Ann had passed away when she tried to contact her to let her know that Caralee had died Dec. 20th in Houston.

    I did get the card that told of her recent move. VIRGINIA STEPHENSON
