She was born and raised in Cannon County. Graduated from Woodbury Central High School. Growing up in a large close knit family, they worked hard together but still knew how to have fun. She met her husband Dixie, fell in love and shared 55 years together. Anywhere he was she wanted to be. They enjoyed camping, fishing and being outdoors together. Wherever they were she made sure there was plenty to eat. She loved cooking for them and just being there. Playing rummy was a hobby she enjoyed and she wouldn't let you win, even if you were family. She was a patient, kind and loving person. The family all knew that she couldn't be still for long, she loved to be busy all the time. She was devoted to her husband and family. One of her greatest joys were family get togethers when everyone could come to eat and visit.
