I was born and raised on a working farm in rural south Georgia in the 1950s. My father grew cotton, tobacco, peanuts, corn, soybeans, cows, hogs, and cane. I leaned to pick cotton, milk cows, and sucker tobacco at the ripe age of five. My siblings and I were raised like the generations before us. My dresses were made out of flour sacks and we had no indoor plumbing or running water. I have three successful children-Pattie, James, and Michael-and ten grandchildren, as well as five stepchildren and eleven stepgrandchildren. I graduated from Valdosta State University with a master's degree in counseling and worked as a mental health therapist for seventeen years. In 1995, I moved to Alaska. There I met my husband, Robert. We lived in Wisconsin for eight years and, a year ago, moved back to Douglas, Georgia, close to the Stokesville area. I like to oil paint and design and make art quilts. I am a member of the Carver Baptist Church and the Girls' Club.
