Minnie was a very good homemaker as her daughter Clara would tell me,(my mother in law.) Clara said in the summer time, Minnie would take all her children out into the woods to find chock cherry's for the children and her to pick so she could make jam from the cherry's that grew on a bush. Clara said she still remember's the jar she put it in and it sat on her dinner table all the time. It is called the chock cherry jar. I have it now. And it will be passed down to my children. They would all help their mother Minnie sew and iron, and hoe the corn fields for their dad. I have pictures of some of the children before they married, cleaning out the weeds from the corn row's. All the children married and left home, later in life Minnie was placed in a old folks home, where she would not get out of bed. She was ready to go home to her Lord. So when the nurse's came in and gave her, her med's. after the nurse's left, she would take the pills out of her mouth, and put them in the bottom of a planter that sat next to her bed. Just pull the plant up out of the planter, and slip the pills inside under the plant. When Clara got a lot older, I took care of her, and noticed she was not feeling very well, so called Clara's sister's girl Jesse and ask her to come out to see if she knew why Clara was not feeling very well, when she found I did give her, her med's the first thing Jesse did was look inside the planter, and sure enough, there was Clara's pills, just like her mother did, so she could die and go on home to the Lord. Clara and the rest of Minnie's daughters would sat around and tell one story after another of their home life and them growing up with such a loving mother like Minnie, who really did like being a mother to them, and a wife also.
