She lived on the Dyer Ridge Rd near Baxter, TN from the mid 1960s to 1980 in two different houses on that road. We usually had a homecoming and birthday celebration for her on May 30th at her home on the ridge. Most of her kids, grandkids, and a few great grandkids were in attendence. She made quilts for her living kids and grandkids in the last years of her life. She moved to the Old Baxter Rd. in Boma Tennessee (1980) until moving to Masters Nursing home in Algood, TN due to failing health.
