Callie worked in production for 15 years for Memorex and Hewlett-Packard. In Callie’s young years she loved playing a game of softball. She was an avid baseball fan always cheering on her favorite team while watching the game on TV. She was a “political junkie” and enjoyed watching debates as she was very knowledgeable about what was going on around the world. Callie was an extremely classy lady loving the beauty of ballroom dancing. She will be remembered as an elegant lady who was full of life. She will be missed.
