Mrs Ausherman was my Den Mother in Cub Scouts many many years ago. My condolences to John and Sue, Tim and all those lucky enough to spend time with her over the years. Side note, I can't believe it was that long ago that Tom passed away. She was a wonderful giving lady and I know you'll all miss her very much.
