Dr. Palmer was a pioneer of her time in Information Technology. She not only was a Professor at Western Kentucky University, she also taught Information Technology in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia. When Dr. Palmer was not busy writing one of her many Publications, or giving lectures around the world, she loved to travel with her [late] husband of 54 years, John Bergin Palmer.
She is survived by her grandchildren, Alan and Tonya Palmer-O’Dell, of Punta Gorda, Fl. Dr. Palmer is a proud Grandma. She would light up at the thought of her grandchildren. To say she was a proud grandmother, would be an understatement. It was very obvious to she the love she had for them, simply by the smile she would have while speaking of them.
