  1. So sorry to hear of her passing. My childhood remembrance of the Payne family is of Jerry who I went to school with. Probably until 5th grade. I remember Janet too but just that she was a sister. And Mrs Payne was a good friend of my mom. We lived on W Lake St and the Paynes lived on W Dimmit St.
    My condolences to the entire family.
