A devoted wife and loving mother, she had a quick wit with ornery nature. She enjoyed sewing, cooking, canning, gardening and traveling.

Eugene Wolford and he preceded her in death on March 26, 1985. In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by a son, Larry Wolford and 10 brothers and sisters.
