My Auntie was such a wonderful lady I always loved spending time with her. Especially since she would spoil me because I was her first niece and she had all boys, so that seems to make me more special. She loved to go dancing and I did too. I will miss you Auntie.
Love you always and forever

I would come visit every summer for a month+ Since I was 4. I remember she would always have pecan pie, blue bell homemade vanilla ice cream, honey buns and plenty of Dr Pepper. She most certainly passed on her sweet tooth on to me. I remember the trips to the beauty parlor, Dosses dress store, the kemp pharmacy, shopping trips to Dallas (she loved to shop) and the many vacations we would take together. Hot springs, the Alamo, White sands, Denver and a few more. I remember watching scary movies, the twilight zone, all in the family and the jeffersons with her late at night while eating a big bowl of blue bell. I remember visiting with family and friends always!! I will miss her immensely❤️❤️❤️.

I remember many of days in my preteen years, going to Auntie and Uncle Bob’s. Auntie loved
to dance. I remember we would dance to Rod Stewart “Hot Legs” we always had such a great time together. I was always told of a time when she kept me as a toddler, and i wanted dr.
Pepper. She kept telling me no and gave me milk. Finally, she gave me Dr Pepper and I looked at her and poured it out!
Auntie also bought me my wedding dress, and held our rehearsal dinner in her home.
And later in life she became great friends
With my father in law, and helped him through a very rough time. Thank you Auntie. We love you!
