She worked at Reed’s Garment Company in her early life but was a homemaker, a mother and grandmother most of her life. She provided great meals for her family, kept her flower beds perfect, and was a master seamstress making clothes for her children and grandchildren over the years. A caregiver, she sat with many elderly folks the last part of her life giving them expert, compassionate care.
