In her elder years Luvenia always wore a little black, gathered night cap. Her grandson Allan said she was known to sweep the dirt paths to the outbuildings from her home with a broom. Her home was "carpeted" with rag rugs that she made on her large loom. Every Spring they would be removed for cleaning. Fresh straw would be put down, before placing the rugs back and sewing them together.
Luvenia and her daughter Ada were wonderful seamstresses. They made everything from quilts and dresses, to mens suits.
