Following is the November 2015 newsletter from the Black and Coloured Sheep Breeders Association of Australia:
From Jane Caulfield:
I just had a call from Ray & Anna Goff’s daughter who said that Anna died night before last from a massive stroke. They started with Romneys in the late 1980’s and were active in the association and showing Romneys for a number of years. Her obituary and information about visitation and funeral are on the website for Manakee Funeral Home in Elizabethtown, KY. Address for Ray is P. O. Box 7, White Mills, KY 42788. If anyone would like to make a memory gift in her name, the family suggested a donation to her church, Grand View Baptist Church c/o Libby Johnson (church secretary), 796 Constantine Road, Cecilia, KY 42724.
