Mom had many skills and worked really hard thru her life. She was an excellent seamstress and sewed almost anything. She made curtains for our home, decorative pillows, tailored suits and dresses for herself, dresses and clothes for us kids. She also sewed many, many neckerchiefs for the boy scouts while dad served as the scout master.
Mom was a great cook. She made the best lemon meringue pies, date nut cookies, cream cheese cookies, divinity, and a fruit cake that was actually really good to eat. She canned everything; peaches, pears, cherries, beets and jams of every kind. Mom worked really hard at raising us kids, keeping a clean home, washing clothes and ironing just about everything, cooking and gardening.
Mom and dad did a lot of traveling in their truck and camper. Many fishing trips and Yellowstone trips. One summer they drove to each county seat in the state of Utah to collect a stamp of the county and they really had a lot of fun doing this.
Mom loved the color red, the color pink, flowers, birds, Lily Putt Lane Houses, her yard and the great outdoors. Most of all she loved her family and she would always give everyone a kiss goodbye when they left. She always put her hands on the little ones cheeks and just loved them all. We will all miss you mom, we love you, thank you for everything.
