As a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, she always had time to share her love of art, music and the value of simpler things in life such as raising a vegetable garden with her family and friends. “Mamaw” to those who were blessed to have known her, always had a kind word and a hearty meal for anyone that visited her home in the Blair community near Cumberland, KY. She will be dearly missed by the many friends and family whose lives she has touched over the years. She will be remembered for the gentle kindness of her spirit, the graceful way she could always make you smile and the genuine love you felt when she was near.
