Meningitis victim's family seeks home for her dog
ELKHART, Ind. — Relatives of an 89-year-old woman who was the first person to die in Indiana from a multi-state fungal meningitis outbreak are looking for a new home for her dog.
The poodle mix named Lucky lived with Pauline Burema at her Cassopolis, Mich., home until she was hospitalized with meningitis after getting a tainted back pain injection.
Burema died Oct. 10 at a relative's Bristol, Ind., home.
Carol Snyder tells The Elkhart Truth (http://bit.ly/SR0vtP ) her mother had a special companionship with Lucky. The dog became Burema's faithful companion after her husband died in August 2010, but now he needs a new home and new companions.
Lucky has been staying with Burema's grandson at his home near Union, Mich., but Snyder says the family can no longer care for him.
