Pedie and her husband (Hampton) were friends with my parents, and Pedie remained a fine friend to my mother, Jo Yearout after their husbands were gone. Pedie was truly a bright and charming lady, and the last of my mom's close friends in Princeton. We remember her fondly.
I knew Pedie when she worked for Dr Spangler and Dr McCarey in Princeton WV and I worked at Peoples Drugs .
