    I worked with Pansy for a short while at GSU in '81-'82 when I was a senior in high school. And in later years, would see her working with a smile in the fabric store. I will always ewmwmbwe her as such a sweet lady. Sending prayers of healing and comfort for her family and friends.

    Pansy and I worked at GSU but not in same department. And, she is related to me through her deceased father.? And, I have many childhood memories of Pansy's mother and younger sister, Suzy. Pansy and Raymond were very kind and generous to my mother and elderly grandfather and two young cousins my mother cared for after their father (mom's brother) died.. A sweeter or nicer lady would be hard to find. My sympathies to Raymond and Suzy and all those she leaves behind. I know she will be missed..

    I worked at Gulf States Utilities but not in Pansey's area. However, she is a relative of mine through her father. Pansey's and Raymond were very kind and generous to my mother, her father and two of my young cousins my mother was raising after the death of their father: my mother's brother. They hold a special place in my heart. My deepest sympathy to those she leaves behind. She was a wonderful, sweet human being. I know she will be missed by so many.

    Have a lot of good memories of Pansy. Dealing with her @ work was always a pleasant & rewarding experience.
    I thought she was closer to my age (70). I am glad she had a long run. Rip Pansy

    I have many memories of this fine lady and I wish the best for Raymond and the rest of the family. I first met Pansy in 1981 when I started working for GSU under Tom Wier. Between Pansy Westman and Glenda Champagne, they kept that 23 year old whippsnapper in line! She loved her family and I know she will be missed by all.
