From her daughter:

We lost my mother very unexpectedly last night. By the time she made it to the hospital, its was just too late. The staff at Sequoyah Memorial worked tirelessly and did everything that they could to save her, but the damage was done. At this point, we believe she had a pretty massive heart attack. She was completely healthy... never had any warning signs. The only medicine she took was a daily vitamin and was very active.

My condolences to her family!  I'm quite shocked!  She looked as healthy as a milk commercial and I'm supposed to find a new heart guy since mine retired after 50 years.  I found out that I had a heart condition after passing out in July of last year.  I skate three times a week and consider myself quite healthy.  Being one who would rather take the cat to the vet and being one who feels like one when going, I've put it off and got a call today that I'm a bit overdue to see my heart guy.

Pete, my prayers to you and your family.  I have to fly out Wednesday because Dad isn't expected to make it.  Accept ALL the help you can get.

Reba's obituary:

Sadly, Reba's mom, Ethel Darcy, passed away today, just a few hours before her daughter's funeral. Ethel lost all four of her children: Walter, Freda, Curt, and now Reba. I think her heart was just broken.
