It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Libbi Stroud on February 5. Libbi was a long-time member and often active in club functions. She is survived by her husband Jim, also a very active member.
A Memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 23, at Hayworth-Miller Funeral Home in Lewisville. For more information see: https://www.hayworth-miller.com/notices/ElizabethLibbi-Stroud?fbclid=IwAR0WrbhmeTE-om8WwORcXgVnKQUHiw-w34Ccvhl5LuNOEjsDcvY2-L7htkw
