    Major Wall was my charge nurse on the 103 bed Convelescent Ward at the USAF Hospital, Wiesbaden, Germany from 1970 to 1972. She was an absolute delight. She took us all under her wing and provided great leadership for we young nurses. She also was a wonderful “partier” Her penthouse apt in town was the site of many exciting, fun filled parties and she was always the perfect hostess. She would open her home to we kids and party just as hard as we did. We brought the food and drink and cleaned up afterwards because we loved her and wanted to keep partying there. I can still see her blonde hair, red lips and her Ben Franklins perched on her nose held by a chain around her neck. She was the best thing that ever happened to me and my professional life. I met my husband at one of her parties.

    I sent her a card last year( 2004) with a picture of me in it and hope she was well enough to recognize me. Please know that she was loved by all and it is with sadness that I mourn her passing.
