I remember her reading portions of A Tale of Two Cities.  What a voice she had for reading aloud.
Love,
Betty

I heard a past interview with her today. She had a horrid youth and overcame it all.  Many years she did not speak until a teacher egged her into speaking because the teacher said, "You say you love poetry, but unless you speak the words you don't really love poetry."  She said she went off by herself finally and started speaking for the first time in the many years since she had been raped.

She was who she was with no pretenses.  She said she was not modest but worked at humility because that came from the heart.  She was proud of her title, Dr. and requested that it be used.  Many women let that Dr. title slip; men don't.

Her example for overcoming adversity and finding a meaningful place in the world will be missed.  And yes, I so enjoyed listening to her read.
