Mother was a dairy farmer and poultry grower for 38 years, she knew all about hard work and responsibility. Mother milked 27 cows by hand every morning and evening. She kept cream cans sitting in cold spring water over next to the granary, and would fill'em by carrying two buckets of milk at a time from the barn. The cans of milk were picked up by the milk truck every morning, later on Mother got automatic milkers, which made the job a little easier. Mother also had three brooder houses of chickens, this was alot of work for one skinny little farm girl! Once each winter my uncles and aunts all came over and we'd butcher three or four of our fattest hogs. The sausage meat was stuffed into cloth sacks granny made on her pedal sewing machine, (which I now have in my home, and cherish). For the rest of the winter, we'd have fresh ham from the smokehouse, breakfast was pork tenderlion, redeye gravy and granny made homemade biscuits every mornin'. I remember in the summer when a terrible storm would blow in during the middle of the night, Mother would jump out of bed, and head to the brooder houses to close all the windows, and make sure her chickens didn't pile up. I loved summertime on the farm, Mother would take us out on the back porch at night, to hear the Panther Cat scream, that was pretty exciting, I never wanted to be very far from the back door or out of her arms! Laying in bed at night listening to the whippoorwill's right outside our bedroom window before falling asleep. Mother was a cowgirl at heart, she loved wearing western clothes, and could ride any horse her daddy had on their farm, her favorite horse was "Dinah". She loved country and western swing music. Her favorite season was spring, seeing the beautiful flowers blooming, the magnificent beauty of the dogwood and redbud trees in her yard.

I will never forget the moment your heart stopped and mine kept beating

Mother married Charles Martin on July 12, 1965 in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Mother was a member of the United Methodist Church of Elm Springs, Arkansas.
