She met the next love of her life, W.T. Eckert and they shared a beautiful 10 years together before he went to be with our Lord. She attended Immanuel Baptist Church in Mineral Wells and she was a member of the Silver Notes singing group. She loved to garden, sew, knit, crochet, and cook for her family. She also loved to watch the birds on her back porch and her favorite was the Cardinal. Most of all, she loved her family.
She saw almost 100 years of change in her lifetime including 17 presidents, traveling in covered wagons, dirt floors, the modernization of the automobile, electricity in every home, telephones, numerous wars, the great depression, and the industrial revolution. She will be remembered for her laughter, her love, her indomitable spirit and spunk, and her beautiful smile.
