Our mother and daddy were sweethearts all through high school – she wore his letter jacket proudly and never had one date with anyone else. She was foremost a strong Christian lady and set the bar very high for all of us. She was a lifetime Southern Baptist who lived her faith. Most of her career was in sales at Pfeifer's Department Store. During the war years, she proudly worked in the Jacksonville Ordinance Plant. Our mother was loved and greatly respected by her family and those who took such gentle care of her during her final year of life – Lakewood Rehabilitation and Nursing Home, Dr. Nkechi P. Ugwuh-Moss, and the wonderful nursing staff in Unit 1A, North Little Rock Baptist Health.
