Daughter of Thomas Allen Grimes and Anne Thompson. Taught school in a one room school house in Paoli, GA from age 16 to 21. Many students were older than her.

Married to Kenchen Bishop Woods.

Raised 7 fine children during the Great Depression on a small farm in Watkinsville GA. Saved some of the "egg money" raised from the chickens secretly for a year to buy my Mother her High School Class Ring when she graduated in 1931.

Today we don't know what poor is compared to 1931.

Moved from Georgia to Norwich CT during the war living on Laurel Hill Ave. Celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary just months before her death.
