  • To Charlie and family my heartfelt condolences on the passing of Elizabeth Ann Hooks, RN. I don’t recall ever meeting her, but I did associate with husband Charlie when he held fire safety training at Mansfield Hospital along with the late Don Green. In viewing her obituary I find we were classmates at Shelby High, her class of 1957, me class of 1959. We would’ve passed in the school hallways many times. She may have graduated from MGH Nursing School before I was employed March 14, 1968.
