Maud was the oldest daughter in a family of 12 children born to Robert Mansfield Garrison & Ruth Angeline Maynard in Putnam County, Tennessee. She learned to cook when just a small girl (she said 5 years old) and used to stand on a chair early in the morning to make the biscuits for the family breakfast. One can not imagine what a good cook she was unless you sat at her table. She shared that talent all throughout her life to the joy of all who came to her home. Everyone loved to come and visit Aunt Maud because she was so pleasant and they enjoyed her fried chicken, biscuits and berry cobbler. She was pretty famous for her berry cobbler. I watched her make that once and wish I could duplicate it.
Maud had a spiritual side to her life and was a sincere Christian. She helped cook for the Mormon missionaries when they had conferences at her aunt & uncles home. She listened intently and every thing they talked about made sense to her. She was baptized into the church when she was 21 years old.
Her sister, Dorsa, also joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City. They were the closest of sisters, had much in common and shared their hearts with one another. Summer time always brought their families together in Madera, California. They had moved to California about 1930 and so had her parents as well as many of the family.
She is a beloved aunt and a precious soul that I'll always love and remember.
