  1. My mother and I moved in to the other side of Daphna and Ira’s house in January 1970 after my dad had passed away. Lots of room games too place that year.

    My sincere condolences to the family . Wish I had had a chance to visit her.

  2. One of my fondest childhood memories was staying with Aunt Daphna and Uncle Ira during the summer. My mother Hazel stayed with them before she got married and they Especially loved each other all their lives. I saw her several times at the nursing home. She always remembered me and was happy to see me. She will be missed.

  3. I stayed with my Aunt Daphna & Uncle Ira during the snowy winter of 1976 when I lived in Tompkinsville & worked in Glasgow. Years later, I was blessed to visit with her the four years my Parents were at NHC. She was such a sweet lady and I loved her so very much.💕

  4. So sorry for your loss.
    May the Lord look down and comfort each of you during this time of sorrow.

    memories is spending the night
    with you from school in the fall of 1946 or spring of

  6. So sorry to hear this, My Mom, Mable Oaks, would want to share her sympathies with her family. Long time friends they were.
