Mrs. Sidders and her husband moved to the South about forty-five years ago. She

radio. She also loved watching the news and the baseball games.
In addition to four surviving relatives, Mrs. Sidders was blessed with a large,
"extended family", and many friends; who loved her for her warmth, cheerful
outlook, elegance and a devotion to graceful living. She will be missed very
much.
