The Community Foundation extends its condolences to the family and friends of Ed & Sandy Auter of Covington. Sadly, Sandy's beloved husband, Ed, passed away on Monday, June 6.
Ed always had a BIG heart to give a "hand-up" to those in need, especially children and youth. Therefore, the family has requested that memorial gifts be made to the "Kids-in-Need Fund" at the Foundation. Donations in Ed's memory may be made online or mailed to: Covington Community Foundation, ATTN: Kids-in-Need Fund, PO Box 175, Covington, IN 47932-0175.
