Birth: Dec. 31, 1902
Death: Sep. 28, 1997

Aunt Otha believed, "Idle hands are the devil's handiwork," and work she did. As any farmer's wife, she prepared all the fruits and vegetables for preserving, while Uncle Hurley smoked the meat in the smoke house. I remember wash days when the wash pot was put to boil with a chunk of lye soup and stirring those clothes till they were snow white, taking them down to the creek and slapping them against the rocks to rinse and further clean. Often times, one would slip away from us and float down the creek. A good excuse for us to get wet.

She ironed everything from his socks to the dish towels and would never let the dishes wait.
