Totsie was the fifth child of the family of 10 siblings. Totsie and her siblings were raised on a farm where life was full of hard work and long hours. The family was devoted to each other and enjoyed spending their leisure time gathered around the piano singing. Totsie and her siblings sang at local “singings” during their early years. Totsie played the piano by ear and throughout her adult years often played the piano for church services. Totsie became a Christian at the age of 10 and was baptized in a creek near Union Baptist church, Caesar, Mississippi where she served as church custodian during her teenage years.

The family settled in Texas after Paul was discharged from the service in 1953. . Wherever they lived the family joined a local Baptist church and were very active. During the last years of her husband’s life, Totsie served alongside Paul as the minister’s wife.
