JONES, ALBERTA CONWAY JONES
JONES -- Alberta Conway Jones. Age 87, passed away on February 27, 2006,
at her Stamford home.
She loved sports, and was devoted to the opera and the NY Times crossword puzzle.
This rang a bell, so I nexis-ed mentions of the crossword in NYT death notices - 94 mentions since 1997! Most of them specifying New York Times crossword puzzles!
Here are some random comparisons:
Squash racquets: 14 (good joke if you happen to play)
Stamp collecting (or collector): 11
Parachute or parachuting: 9
