In her final years in the field, an instrument technician from Alabama has found work as a teacher at an Alabama high school.
The woman was working as a lute technician in Mobile, Ala., when she died in January.
She is survived by her husband and three children.
Lute music is a relatively new art form in the United States, and the instrument itself is often played by an instrument trained to play it.
But instrument manufacturers, music educators, and musicians around the country are making music instruments out of lute strings and other materials that have been found in human bodies.
The lute is a traditional instrument that is usually played by a person in a position of authority.
In this case, it was a lance instrument.
Lances are typically held in a hand, and are usually tied to the body.
Lute strings are made out of an elastic material that has a metal center and is also flexible.
These lances can be stretched, twisted, or snapped together, which is what allows them to be used as weapons.
The Associated Press has more on the lute.
