Funeral on Tuesday in Iowa

scarlatti's mother writes as follows:

Douglas, thank you-
I have lots to share with you about Susan's beautiful passing.
We are here, at her apartment, planning the funeral. Her body is being flown to Belmond, Iowa where she will be buried in her father's family plot. Her site will be next to her fraternal grandparents, under an oak tree, looking out towards the family homestead. She was their only granddaughter, and had her grandmother's red hair. The funeral will be in the church she was baptised in 39 years ago. The flowers will be lavender and so will her clothes. She will wear a small pin with two crossed flags--one British and one American.
We will be leaving for Iowa on Sunday morning, the funeral will be on Tuesday, June 20th at 2 or 3 p.m.
I will be back at the apartment on Wednesday and Sam (her brother) and I will be clearing it out. If there is anything you need or something of hers you would like to keep,please let me know.
I really loved her.
Nancy
