She served faithfully beside Ed supporting the Shriners and Elks and she was a member of the Eastern Star. Her love of children also extended to the boys and girls at the Oxford Orphanage. Another great passion was working in her yard and she loved helping her family in their yards. She leaves a lasting legacy of family, friendship, and love that she created during her lifetime.
