She enjoyed her years raising her family, farming and working cattle alongside her husband. She loved the outdoors and was known as the baby cow grandma to a few of her grandkids. She also enjoyed gardening and canning. A very loving and caring person, she was totally devoted to her family and always found time to play and read to her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
