She was even awarded yard of the month when she was eighty seven years old.

Her family gathered at her house for Mother’s Day every year for a backyard barbecue, and she also had long ago started a tradition of cooking the noon meal on Christmas day for all of the family, which she continued until age ninety.

She was a lifelong member of the Dermott Baptist Church where she once taught Sunday School, Vacation Bible School and served on the Food Committee.
