She was a longtime resident of Blackwell and Ponca City Oklahoma. She loved to garden, take grandchildren fishing or anything outdoors. Grew tomatoes every year but wouldn't eat them. Also grew elephant ear plants, her oldest daughter started her on those. She was a do-it-yourself person, there wasn't anything she was afraid to try and fix. Most of her jobs had something to do with food, preparing, cooking, baking or serving. She made cherry cream cheese pie for every holiday and no one could beat her amazing fried chicken. She considered anyone in her life family, was a spur of the moment road tripper, collected holiday Nut Crackers, could talk on the phone for hours, there never was a quick conversation with her, for as long as we could remember she was either 39 or 103 and everyone she touched in life she left an impression on.
