    I was very saddened to learn of the passing of Mrs. Peele. She was a special and wonderful person and sorry for the loss to her family and friends! Most recently (2011)we reminisced about all the good times at KFC in the early 70’s when I worked there summers for her and Maxton, and with Meline, Katherine, and Ruby; she treated us as part of her family.
