To Karen & Family,

I worked at Murphys in the late 70's and early 80's during my high school and college years. I was assigned to the basement and Autumn (Lolly) was my mentor in the household/hardware section. All the young guys that worked there appreciated her greatly as she was known as one "cool" ladies to work under. I was stunned at her knowledge of hardware, car supplies etc. It was just not something you expected from a woman in that era. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
