She was married to her loving husband, Robert, for 58 years. She was well known for her exceptional domestic engineering abilities. She was well skilled in cooking, canning, freezing, and entertaining.

Mom loved to travel. She loved her yearly trips to the Outer Banks and Maine and bus trips to Pennsylvania. They visited many states and even enjoyed a river cruise in Europe as well as a favorite trip to Israel.

She was a member of Harmony Grove Baptist Church for most of her life. She and Robert were married there on September 30 after the Sunday church service so we are pleased we can have her visitation there as well to celebrate her life.
