“Odesta was so shy. She would be in the background most of the time, and it was easy to think her younger sister, Frances, was actually the older of the two. But Odesta had a great charm, and a natural beauty, that was heightened by her unself-consciousness. She was peaceful, helpful, and kind to all around her. ” - Kathryn Barbour
