    To the family of Ms. Chauvin,
    It was such an honor to know Ms. Chauvin. I have fond memories of her/Betty & Joe while I worked at the Arboretum. Ms. Chauvin was always so sweet, caring and have the most beautiful smile. Her family loved her tremendously and it was that love she showed her family that has kept her legacy growing. She was always surrounded by her family. Please accept my sincere condolences.
