She grew up in Detroit and met Ray at a Valentine’s dance.  They planned to celebrate their 27th anniversary in June.  She and her family came to Cannon County and made their home many years ago.  She was a simple, down to earth person, with an amazing smile, and never met a stranger.  She worked for Parsley’s Market for about 15 years before her health began to fail.  The people at Parsley’s were like a second family.  She enjoyed going to yard sales and flea markets.  Her family nicknamed her the “Yard Sale Queen”.  She liked working in the yard and one of her favorite flowers was a sunflower.  She loved spending time with her grandchildren and family every chance she had.
