    Cheryl, I’m so sorry for your loss. She sounds really remarkable, and typical of a Depression era child, so capable of taking on a yeoman share of duties with such a large family and growing and producing the food, and I suspect clothing as well. I know when I lost my mom it was so hard to adjust: it’s the last person who pretty much knows everything about you and I felt s bit like an orphan. My sympathies!! Cheryl Larson
