Flora Southern Driskill
Birth: Mar. 15, 1899
Death: Jan. 15, 1984

Daughter of William and Catherine Southern. Married Avery Driskill,Feb. 21,1921. I remember as a child my cousin Wylinda and I taking pots and pans from grandma's kitchen going outside and playing house with them sometimes we made mud pies in her pie pans we used wild flowers to decorate our mud cakes. I also remember getting under her bed where she kept a case of the little Cokes in bottles we would get us one open it and drink it hot. Grandma always had chickens and we helped gather eggs, go to the garden and get fresh vegetables helping churn butter after grandpa milked the cows. The one thing we always did was get the pots and pans clean before she had to cook another meal. Grandma always had a big meal everyday, and never seen a stranger when it came to feeding people. She was a early riser usually always had breakfast ready by 4:30 am and dinner on the table about 10:30 p.m. most of the time supper at 4:00 p.m. and by 7:00 was in bed. She loved to can and always had a very large fruit closet full of food to last until the next garden was ready. She put on a clean apron every day, washed clothes on a wringer washer and hung clothes out to dry in the summer, in the winter she would hang them to dry in the house.
