Although mom only taught school for a brief period of time, she was always a teacher. She taught us a love of reading, and she taught Sunday School, led Explorers & coached fastball, always encouraging the children to be the best they could be at whatever they chose. For 27 years she worked alongside of Jack taking care of the Mossbank School. Her greatest passion was her flowers and looking after her yard. Decorating it with her painted ornaments, birdhouses and other projects they designed built and painted together in their retirement.
