She loved raising chickens and looked forward to gathering the eggs everyday. She also had her home decorated with roosters and chickens. She enjoyed working in her beautiful flowers and crocheting. Her biggest passion in life though was her family. She loved to cook for them and Sunday afternoon around the Souther table was always enjoyed by the family.
