RN Died in House Fire

Sondra had been a RN since long before I met her. She worked the ER for most of her career and then Radiology, as well as per diem at a local internal medicine practice. Working well into her 70's, she could run rings around many of those who were 1/2 (or even 1/3) her age. She handled situations the right way, using seriousness and/or her sense of humor, and always with her vast knowledge.

During her "off hours", she managed the books for her late husband's plumbing/HVAC business, operated by her son following the passing of her husband.

A lot of nurses, aides, (and physicians, too) learned a great deal from her. I include myself as one of them and am grateful having known her as a friend and colleague. Countless among us will dearly miss her.

Very sad. Fire is a horrible way to go. DW and I lost our home to a fire but were not injured.

There seem to be a lot of house (and other structure) fires in this area (central NY) lately... not sure why, as there have been recent years in which the number of such fires had diminished markedly.
