Her great-grandchildren are Wyatt, Evan, Zane and Parker and many nieces and nephews.
When she was young her family moved to east Tennessee where they operated a Garden/Flower Center in the peaceful mountains of Kingsport. There she learned the importance of planting flowers for the bees, a food garden to feed the family … while most will only know that she decorated cakes and worked in a bakery … she is not known for how many trees she planted at every property she ever lived at … they now all currently have massive trees for shade during the hot summers, swings for her grandchildren and of course the clean air we all breathe.
But Mother Nature and her Native American mixed family knew these things to be of such importance and for this we will forever be grateful for her incarnation on this earth. Forever “Maw Maw” will be in our hearts … and she will be truly missed.
