It was her custom to walk around main street and feed the homeless birds with bread crumbs. The local paper called her the pigeon lady.

She was Asian and about five-foot tall. In her early 70s, deep lines surrounded her face. Sporting a nón lá conical hat worn by peasants in her native country, the woman carried two bundles containing her possessions placed on both ends of a pole resting on her right shoulder.

On the day she died, as if to mourn her passing, a flock of pigeons were seen perched motionless on telephone lines against a darkening sky.
