In 1949, after her husband's military service, they bought their first and only house in which they raised two children. Jimmie's love for her family showed in everything she did. She loved to cook and bake cakes and bread. She truly knew how to please her family and care for their home. She enjoyed spending time with her loved ones, watching John Wayne movies and was an avid reader of Louis L'Amour novels. She especially enjoyed her little Chihuahua, Cocoa. She always had a joyful spirit and a kind word for everyone.
