They raised four kids, Billie, George, Glenda, and Jerri. They loved us and seven grandkids, six great grandkids and five great great grandkids. Mom enjoyed numerous friends. She was an excellent artist and loved painting china. She was a seamstress, she loved music, people, pets, family and travelling. Mom was a beautiful gardener and raised roses. She was a member of the Permian Regional Medical Center hospital auxiliary and supported her husband and children in their endeavors. Through hard times and good times Mom was always there for us, she was a caring nurturing housewife devoted to her husband and family. Mom taught us good and bad, through gentleness and firmness. We were taught love, kindness, caring, and respect for others, manners and family came first. We hope to be close to what Mom and Dad taught and set examples for us to be.
