Thank you Bradley for your phone call informing me of the loss of a very dear friend and family connection. Donna and I were both born in the Neodesha, Kansas hospital, though 11 years apart. We shared genealogy family links through her mother's Carroll family in Kansas. I was privileged to research Donna's family history and link it to mine a few years ago. Donna shared a little book with me written by Marianne Roeben called "Leaves From The Tree" or Chronicles of the Carrell and Bateman Families. The book is a collection of stories of her family with emphasis on her maternal grandmother, Mary Elissa Pickett-Carrell. I made a copy of this delightful little book and cherish it. I hope the family will find and cherish this little book.
