My Mom had a short, hard life. She had me when she was only
15, just a child, herself really. After she had me, and would take me to town with her, she said people would stop her and say "oh, what a pretty little sister you have"

Her first husband, Billy Joe Metcalf was pysically and mentally abusive to her- it took 9 yrs. to get away from him, by then, she had 3 more children. My Mom had many hardships, and made alot of sacrafices for us. She was a great Mom, I miss her so very much.
Kids from this marriage:
Patrcia "Trish" Ann (Holaway),
Bobby Joe,
David Dwayne, &
Wanda Faye (Szarmach) Metcalf.

Her second marriage to Dale Bates. He was phycially abusive to her also. Marriage lasted about 6 months.

Her third husband was a husband was BOB DUNN. This man was my "DAD" in every way that counts. Please stop by and visit his page.
They had- Kenneth "Kenny" Ray Dunn.

Her last marriage was to Raymond Baker. They were married about 10 years, before she passed away. I wish I say this was a happy marriage, while he never hit her, he was verbally abusive to her, when he drank. And, he drank alot!

The photo (not showing) is the oldest picture I have of my Mom. Date unkown, she must of been 4 or 5. She is sitting in her Dad's lap.

The rocking chair she is sitting in, belonged to her Mother.I have lots of memories of Grandma,in that chair.
I now, own and cherish this rocker.

She is holding her fav. pup, "Cocoa", in the other picture.
Mom loved toy poodles.

And, she loved Elvis- oh, did she love Elvis!! She loved him so much, in fact, there were times in my life, I have been actually jealous of him!! I do hope she is dancing with him right now in heaven.


Daughter of LLOYD MILTON "MUTT" EDDIE & CLARA BELL SCOTT.
