As a mother she was very proud of the accomplishments of her five children. She guided her children to always keep in mind how important family is in life. Education was important to her and she would often babysit so that her children could go to classes.

As her grandchildren and great-grandchildren grew up they often spent days with Grandma working in her east mountain home orchard, feeding the birds, or just playing games-anything as long as her kids were having fun.
