    Mrs. Callaway lived above my grandparents(The Cox's) for many years at University apartments. She was a sweet lady and always dressed so nice. Later on I would see her many times visiting at St. Catherine's and would catch up with her year after year talking about how both our families was doing. Sending condolences to the family.
