Mom was a strong, ambitious, independent woman. After being widowed at the age of 32, she moved her family from Rhode Island to Virginia. She loved mystery novels and had an extensive library. Mom loved to garden and transformed the yards of several homes in Farmville that she bought, renovated and sold. She was also a great baker and loved to gather the family for celebrations with hot cross buns, stollen and fresh baked cookies. Mom was loved by so many family and friends and will be missed greatly.
The family will gather to celebrate her life on Oct. 15.
