She grew up in Wooten, KY. After moving to Cincinnati, OH she lived her life touching many with her kindness and generosity. She leaves behind a legacy to her children of how to treat others no matter what and how to forgive those that trespassed against you. She loved Jesus and found joy in spreading his word and especially teaching her grandchildren about him. She was a wonderful homemaker and spent most of her working career outside the home as a waitress or behind the cafeteria food line, retiring from Cincinnati Milicron. She enjoyed greeting and meeting and serving those that came to eat, always putting that extra special spin on the food she was able to prepare on that line. She took great pride in serving the employees and they took joy in coming thru and seeing her smile.
