Ludowici woman dies in Florida hospital after accident

Editor's note: This article has been revised to reflect the following correction. An earlier version of this online article incorrectly listed Rita Simmons Deen's occupations. She was the daughter of a retired tax commissioner and worked at Ludowici Bank. It also mispelled the name of one of the probate judge candidates. The correct spelling is Teresa Odum. The Coastal Courier regrets the errors.
