Mom was very involved with her family especially the grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. She worked for many years with family at Chick-Fil-A but enjoyed motherhood the most.

Mom was very dedicated to her sweetheart, Darwin, and took care of him throughout their married life, especially when he began having health problems. Mom and Dad were absolutely inseparable and shared an amazing love.
