She spent the last 11 years of her life in Naples living alone in her villa with her cats, and enjoyed excellent health until the last few months of her life. She always said God had been good to her and we who knew her and loved her would have to agree that she was blessed, and so were we. Though very independent and reclusive, she loved and enjoyed time with her family and she had a deep abiding concern for anias that was extraordinary. She took in countless cats, dogs, and even goats and donkeys, and kept them or found good homes for them. No animal ever went hungry if it showed up on her doorstep. She is greatly loved and missed by her two daughters, Mimi Edwards and Dixie Wege; her six grandchildren, Layne Cook, James Cook, Kerry Cook, Chris Cook, Candace Badgett and Lindsay Oliver; her seven great-grandchildren; her two cats, Frankie and Randy; and all the ducks, birds and raccoons at Arbor Trace.
