She volunteered to help with Taylorsville's elementary school lunch activities and was a great favorite of the kids while being a disciplinarian when she felt she had to be. She was one of the founders of the quilters here in Taylorsville and was a steady supporter of the fall and spring festivals. She was so kind to animals that raccoons, deer and skunks would not run away when she came near. When a huge bull escaped from its pasture across the street from her house, she went up to it and commanded that it go back where it belonged while actually pushing it. The bull obeyed. She had no prejudices and did her best to follow the precepts of her religion and her politics, which echoed a compassionate, large-hearted, humanitarian Abraham Lincoln Republicanism.
