With sadness to report Jenny Poe, the lovely wife of Ray Poe for 71 years, passed away today.
Ray Poes' Country western Band has probably performed at the majority of the Post in District One. Some of these Posts are no longer around. Ray and Jenny belonged to Santee Post 9327, where their son (who also passed away) was once the Commander. Our prayers and thoughts are with Ray and family at this time of sorrow.
