Here’s the card shark herself joking around with me.
Janice Teachworth Galle, one the great spirits on this earth, passed into Heaven on New Year’s Day 2009 after a long and courageous struggle. Janice is the daughter of Dorothy and Gaylord Teachworth. She is the wife of Frank Galle and mother of Bob, Lisa and Michael. Sister to John, Joel, Lance, and Roger. Grandmother and great-aunt to many who love her deeply. By the way, although my Aunt Jan moved back to Minnesota many years ago, it’s a known fact that New Orleans has never surrendered her as a resident here. - Jeff
