attended school in the Amity community east of Niangua. After marriage she moved to Springfield, where she worked her entire life in various vocations, retiring from the Missouri Office of Employment Security in Springfield.

Cuba, Missouri, where her family will be celebrating with her. Birthday wishes are welcome!
