Granny was born in the hills of Kentucky and grew up in a family of 12 children during the Depression. She helped raise her younger brothers and sisters, raised her own daughter, then helped raise her grandchildren. She loved her family more than anything. She told us stories all my life, of growing up in the mountains, of family, of life. She took care of people, and she was loved for it, which is probably the greatest testament to her life. 

She loved her Mother- Emma & Beckie

She loved her grandchildren, and for that I am eternally grateful. Growing up with not only one wonderful mother, but also a *grand* mother. I was truly blessed.
