Default In Memoriam - Mrs. Willie Lee Palmore

The sad news has come of the passing of Mrs. Willie Lee Palmore, 84, after a long illness, on Saturday, December 1st. Mrs. Palmore, mother of Capt. Lexie Palmore McMillen of DELTA QUEEN fame and well known fine artist (now operator of the steamboat GRACEFUL GHOST on Caddo Lake in Texas) was a longtime professor at Tyler Junior College, Tyler, Texas. Funeral services were yesterday. Memorials may be made to the Alzheimer's Association or to the Fifth Street Presbyterian Church of Tyler. Mr. and Mrs. Palmore made many trips on the DQ and were truly fine and delightful people. A long whistle salute to their memory and my deepest sympathy to Lex and all her family.
