She stayed home on the farm with her children while they were growing up. Fresh baked cookies and cinnamon rolls greeted her children when they arrived home from school. Mamie loved to grow flowers, can vegetables and go to church, as well has teach Sunday School. She enjoyed music and shared that talent with her children and grandchildren. Mamie continued to pray for her family and many other people over the years, as well as sending greeting cards.

My deepest sympathy to all your family. I really enjoyed your mom. She was such a sweet and nice lady who loved her family deeply. She was so proud of all of. I'm so glad I got the chance to know her through my job at Elm Springs. I'm also thankful she got to live closer to you in her last years
