Hard work was expected.

Jose’ “the perfectionist” also taught the importance of good values, family, and was proud to live a “good clean life”. She loved a good joke, good game of cards, and a cup of hot tea (scalding). She also had artistic crafting skills crocheting mats, needle point, ceramic pottery, decorating; always leading to a clean and tidy home. She loved a good box of chocolates and home-made squares.
