He recalled, “I asked her female cousin to go in and check on her.”
The cousin of Verna left again.
“That was the last time I saw my wife,” said the husband. “I quickly sprang up right away and hurried into the bathroom. Winn informed the station that she was “lying on the stall floor in the ladies room.”
Before EMS arrived, someone at the restaurant started performing CPR, but it was already too late.
