    Aunt Gussie will be missed. She was a great blessing to so many children in her lifetime. She welcomed other people's children into her home and treated them as her own. May she rest in the peace of God.

    I met Miss Gussie years ago when she was a housekeeper for a home health pt I took care of. The family adored her, and so did I. She was a good cook, and so pleasant to be around. She will be missed.
