The only club she joined in her life was CLUB MOM. She lived daily for her 5 children, the neighborhood kids and the countless children she would babysit for over the years. Mama was selfless when it came to her. Everyone else came first. When her kids would get into mischief she called us out on it we would ask her “how did you know?” Her reply was always “I just knew!” Mama loved working in her yard with her azaleas and roses.
