Friends and family of 80 year old Reba Temple say she died of the fungal meningitis Saturday.
Officially the State is not listing Temple as an outbreak fatality just yet but that could change.
Friends like Shane Willis say the Hickman County woman was an avid churchgoer at the Centerville Church of Christ who was born and raised in the area.
"She grew up in Hickman County. She took a lot of pride in saying I'm from Hickman County."
Friends affectionately called Temple Ms. Reba.
They say even at 80 years old she was in good health.
That changed after she got the steroid injection to deal with back pain.
"It was a shock to everybody that number one she was in the hospital and number two the passing of her life," said Willis.
Reba Temple was buried Monday morning.
She leaves behind a son and a granddaughter. Tuesday, October 9 2012, 01:41 AM CDT
