My aunt worked for Irene and her husband at the Columbo hotel. Mary Pedri, my aunt, will be 95 next month and Josephine Mills (Pedri),my mother, now 90, were still in touch with Irene until her she died Oct. 2.
This article will be very interesting to both my aunt and my mother as I will enlarge it so that both can read the information. Thank you,
Cathy Mills
Both my aunt and my mother now live with me in Brentwood, 20 miles north of Livermore.
