Sister Grover was a vital link in the 10th Ward when I was growing up. Her testimony was obvious and she shared it often. She was a good friend to my mother Barbara Spiekerman and always welcomed me when I was there for a visit. My condolences to the family who will sorely miss this lady who lived life well.
