She was a wonderful cook from fish to fresh baked apple pie and of course chocolate pie for dad. If it was milking, planting, harvesting, hauling grain, or working in the garden she was there and cooked three meals a day from scratch. She did take time for fishing and one time when dad and I were running the trotline on the Neosho River she yelled from the riverbank “Roy, Roy come quick! I have caught a baby alligator, it was an alligator gar. She loved playing cards with friends and neighbors years ago and going to CB meetings. Reading the Vinita Daily Journal and watching Bold and Beautiful were her main pastimes lately. She was always offering to help and if you lost something she was right there. She loved maple bars, hot coffee, perms, mockingbirds, roses, cattle, and onions; she ate onions twice a day every day. That may be why she lived six weeks shy of 99.
