She worked at Sears while living in Ft Worth, TX.

After returning back to Oklahoma she returned to JC Penny’s. When Dad was transferred to Missouri and then to Illinois she worked for him as his cashier. She enjoyed sewing, gardening, and teaching her children about God and household chores.

Her Chihuahuas were taking care of just as my brother and I were with great care and great love. The dogs might have been cared for with a little more love because they were so small. She would put a little ribbon and attach a small bell around their necks so we wouldn’t step on them. The bell would come off after we become used to having them under our feet. After all, most of them only weighed five pounds when grown.

She was known by the family as the “pie maker”, especially for her chocolate pies. She also made great banana pudding which was a must when the grandkids went to her house.
She was a great Mom who will be missed.
