She was a wonderful loving mother. She always told them when they grow up, they could do and be whatever they wanted if they worked and put their mind to it.
One day while giving her son Billy a bath, she got a very bad headache. She told her oldest daughter Pearl to watch Billy and Laura while she layed down for her headache. Sadly she never woke up and died from a cerebral brain hemorrhage. Her husband raised the children alone with only their oldest child Pearl helping by taking care of the children and the house, He married later when the children were grown.
