Rosemary O. Shipe, née Oeler, 94 3/4 yrs., after nearly 44 years apart, is reunited with the love of her life, John J.

A never-ending curiosity and wonder of the world, love of language, and card playing kept her sharp her whole life.  She started the latter as a young girl, joining her mother's card club (her youth and her skill making her the least, well-liked player).  High school Latin aided her cross-wording, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy passions to the end.
