Lois Body

About two weeks ago, Miss Body had a bad fall in her home on West Governor Street in Springfield. She sustained several injuries and was alone for about 30 minutes before her neighbor and caregiver, Jerry Myers, found her. She recovered in Memorial Hospital and then asked to be transferred to a nursing home in Watseka, Illinois, where she grew up on a nearby farm. She will remain there for the foreseeable future.

Miss Body means a great deal to the many students who took her English classes at SHS. You may send cards to her or else an e-mail message to me; I will collect and pass them on, perhaps with flowers or candy. Jerry says that she is alert, has a good memory, and that she enjoys hearing from friends, but is unable to write messages. Jerry will keep me posted on her condition, and I will let you know here. Her age is now 91 and her birth date is March 23, 1914.

Her mailing address:

Miss Lois M. Body

200 East Fairman Avenue
Watseka, IL 60970
