She was the oldest citizen of Hannah before her move to Langdon. She loved to embroider. She made a blanket and many dishtowels for her family. She was well-known for her homemade buns and loved to bake and cook. You never left her house without having a meal. Family was her life. She loved her husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren with all her heart.
