Finish: Dance ends on count E3 during the 13th repetition, which begins on the original wall. Section D in this repetition has same footwork as previous phrases, with one exception. In order to finish dance on original wall [12:00], for count D2, step L to left (rather than turning 1/4 right to face 3:00; the remaining counts are the same as usual). This way the rolling turn will face and end on 12:00 rather than 3:00.
Following is a step-by-step breakdown, if needed:
D2 - Step L to left (staying on Wall One rather than turning 1/4 right) D3 - Step R to right and slightly back
D4 - Cross L over R D5 - Turn 1/4 left [9:00]
D6 - Tap L toe behind R foot and unwind 1/2 left [3:00] E1 - Turn 1/4 left [12:00] and step R to the right
E2-3 - Holding weight R, make a CCW* circle with ball of L foot, ending with ball of L behind R foot

Quite possibly Hedy was either working on the dance when she passed or had a few dances finished yet unpublished - this is not uncommon.
