"Strong, opinionated, matter-of-fact matriarch of our family, she was not one for blowing smoke and certainly not concerned with vanity. She was the epitome of waste not, want not, after spending some of her very early life in an adobe house on the banks of the Rio Grande in the Big Bend area before it became a National Park….She taught me, among many lessons, how to garden, how to sew, how to make plum jam and pepper jelly, how to make banana pudding and the best chocolate milk shake….I'll always cherish the time I spent at her house as a child and her patience as I threw everything I could find down the laundry shoot, and the hours, as an adult, sitting at her kitchen table sipping coffee while she read the newspaper with a magnifying glass."Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 AM on Thursday, January 6th, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Cathedral in Oklahoma City, OK, followed by interment at Resurrection Memorial Cemetery attended by immediate family.
