She was patient, kind, a devout Christian and always put others before herself. When not working, she enjoyed being a mother, wife, grandmother and homemaker. Her garden produced more than enough for her family and she always had plenty for those less fortunate. On February 2, 1948 she was united in marriage to Joseph C.
