Learning of the loss of Princetta after so many years comes as a sad loss. I met Princetta while she worked for the Sioux City Human Rights Commision in the Insrurance Exchange Bldg. in 1976. I worked as an investigator down the hallway from her office for the Woodbury County Public Defenders Office. We got to know eacother well & had long talks. She was a wonderful, delightful & caring person. She made life better for all she touched. I'm saddened to know she has passed and feel a loss from so long ago. I can still see her smiling so many years back. Thank you Princetta for being you and all you gave.
