  1. One of the nicest people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. She was always a smiling, welcoming face in my early days at St. Denis grade school on Lawrence St. She was also a beloved neighbor on our shared Caryl Avenue. She raised four wonderful children and will be greatly missed. RIP Mrs. Hodges
