She loved the Lord and sharing Gods word was most important to her. She was a homemaker and an awesome cook. She believed in either right or wrong, no exceptions. She and her husband move to Newport News, VA in 1958, so he could work at NNS and drydock to escape working in the coal mines. They finally settled in Smithfield, VA in 1969. Her children and grandchildren were her greatest achievements, she devoted her life to her family and her church.
