  1. My name is Beth Shay-Stidom. I am the grand daughter of Louise Shank Vickers. I was wondering if you could if at all possible, mail or email a copy of the obituary / memorial card to my address. She is currently staying with me. She is soon to be 99 years young in July and unfortunately will not be able to attend her brothers funeral service. I would greatly appreciate any assistance you could offer in regards to this matter. Thank you for your time.
