The Bible asks the question in Proverbs 31:10 “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies”. This was exemplified in every aspect of our mother. The heart of our father trusted her, she rose while it was still dark to prepare breakfast every morning for her family, she laid her hands to the spindle and created beautiful quilts and clothes for her family, she spoke words of wisdom and kindness to everyone she knew, and last but not least Strength and Honor were her clothing as she stayed strong and determined until she took her last breath. She will be forever missed by her loving family and by all who knew her.
