Herbert and was raised by her grandparents, Fannie & George Howard.  Hanky was baptized into the Lord at Lake Forest church of Christ over 10 years ago and she went to be with Him on January 9, 2023. Hanky loved spending time with her family and devoted husband of nearly 53 years, James “Peewee” Vernon Chewning. They married on September 23, 1970.
