After the family moved to Ashland in 1957 she raised her children in the Philadelphia Association Churches and always said she was blessed to have two home church families. She was known for many things, particularly her pumpkin rolls with her secret ingredient “a pinch of love”. She earned her GED in 1987 and made sure each of her children finished at least high school. She was a seamstress at Stars Fashion and altered many items for family and friends from her home over the years. She quilted for Hospice of Ashland for 14 years even during her stay at Woodland Oaks and enjoyed her many hours with her quilting friends. She enjoyed going to church, cooking for her family, sewing, quilting, and going on drives in the country.
The family wishes to extend their many thanks to all her church, family, and friends who have shown so much thoughtfulness, love, and care to her throughout her life. Appreciation to organizations such as Woodland Oakes, Hospice Care, Ashland Active Day, Ashland Arthritis Center, MTS and Medi-Cab and Dr. Jones and staff of Family Medicine Center of Bellefonte who have become our extended family. Words can’t express what it means to have caregivers like these wonderful people.
She loved her church, family, and friends – she will be sorely missed by many!
