Miss Rowena was a grand lady, gifted with intelligence, graciousness and a wonderful sense of self-worth. Those fortunate enough to have met and known her are undoubtedly the better for it. She will truly be missed and is leaving a space in life that is unlikely to be filled.
I will dearly miss this wonderful lady. My admiration and respect will always persist.
Mrs. Rowena was a such a sweet, classy woman. I enjoyed listening to her stories when I would visit my grandmother. Mrs. Rowena had such a long, full life. My condolences to her family, both relatives and Baily Manor family
