Grandma Goldie was the busy and loving mother of twelve children. She was a tiny, little bit of a thing, and before her marriage to Martin Edwin Oaks, she was a dancer and actress in the local area. She loved and cared for her mother who lived next door to her for many years. When her grandchildren and great-grandchildren visited, she loved to talk about her pills and purpose for each. She was never at a loss for words. She lived in her little home on the bend of where young grandchildren took turns sleeping over. Later in years, she lived in the home and care of her daughter, Bea and son-in-law Slim. She'd been an ambitious little lady. She kept an old trunk with her handiwork and favorite items, kept her antique curling irons and iron. A large, black Majestic coal stove heated her home and cooked many meals for her large family. It had first been her mother's stove, was passed down to Grandma Goldie, then to her son, Ercil; then to his son, Dennis, whose young family used it well for many years, baking cookies, canning old-fashioned Christmas pudding in jars, a functional stove, but also a show-piece.
