  1. Quite a legacy to pass on to her 12 children.

  2. Don't you love those obituaries when the writer praises the newly departed as if they were good friends? Maybe they really were - did family write the obituary back then? I always assumed there was a staff writer.

    1. Wendy, good point. This obit comes from the Baptist Church records. I think it was a small church & they all knew each other but I don't know that for sure.
