Merriam Press Personal Chronicle 5 (First Edition, 2013). This is the story of a woman who made a difference here on earth. Born in 1914, she touched the lives of many people during her 90 years. Growing up in the heartland of Kentucky, she married a farmer and lived her entire life working and providing for her family of nine. She was the most wonderful, kind, inspirational and loving mother. On the farm she prepared hearty and bountiful meals three times a day for her family. A lot of hard work was involved in preparing all sorts of food. Fruits and vegetables were planted, harvested, and preserved during the summer to sustain a growing family during the dead of winter. Biscuits, pies, and cakes were all made from scratch. One of her most precious talents was playing the piano. She had learned to play at a very young age and it stuck with her throughout her entire life. She raised five sons and four daughters. All five sons would serve their country in the US Marine Corps. 90 photos, map.
