Thank you for posting the obituary of Lois Zabel Banke. I was looking for information on her, as IRead More had not heard from her in over 10 years. She was my beloved piano teacher for 5 years when I studied for my degree plus some post grad in music from The University of Texas in Austin, TX from 1946-1951. I am so sad to read of her death. She was a wonderful musician and person. Thank you.
