She was a wonderful and devoted Wife and Mother, both Great and Grand who loved to cook and take care of her family especially proud of a clean home. She taught her three girls to first, trust The Lord, love your family, and feed them well. Keep a clean and orderly home. And, if you work or have a job to do, do it right the first time.
