She was a wonderful “Nanny” to her grandkids that she just adored and spoiled to death. I never knew of anyone that didn’t like my mother for she was the most loving and giving person in the world with a heart of GOLD! She was not prejudice in any way at all for she had friends of all races. The people that worked with her for years will tell you this. She raised other children as well over the years and loved them as her own. After losing her husband at the age of 27, “Victim” from the Thiokol explosion in 1971, to raising my brother and I by herself. She was a wonderful mother, best-friend, wife, sister, friend, aunt that will be missed so very much.
