My lady Mary and I knew Walter and Donna from the Shriners. Some years ago, Mary and I attended a performance of "Forever Plaid" at the Broadway Baby Dinner Theater. Donna and Walter were at the same performance with another group of friends. If I remember correctly, it was the Booth's wedding anniversary. The premise of the play is that four friends who are a singing group finally got a gig that would boost their careers. They drive to NYC to their gig, which is the same night that the Beatles are performing on the Ed Sullivan Show. The boys are hit by a bus carrying Beatles fans to the show, and are killed. The boys are given one last chance (by the Big Guy) to perform, and Forever Plaid is that show. The first act has the group singing several songs, and they get better with each number. They have a pianist on stage with them to accompany them. After the intermission, their accompanist is "missing". The group needs someone from the audience to come up on stage to play "Heart and Soul" on the piano. Well, Donna was selected, and when the group tells her what note to start on, she played a little flourish and went into the song! The singers had no idea she was a piano teacher, so that was a little joke on them...It really made the evening special for everyone in the audience.. We all will miss Donna. They were a wonderful couple.

Donna Booth lives on in all the piano students she taught and the music they continue to share and enjoy in their lives. She gave piano lessons to our 4 daughters, coming to our home for years in Brookfield until she stopped traveling and we came to her home in Hartland. She was a consummate teacher--knowledgeable, kind, patient, and challenging. With loving memories, Judy & Pat Hogan
