Starting Quilting in 1986 at age 60 after raising her 5 children, this energetic and exacting woman has created a quilting legacy that will span generations. Born and raised in Red Lake Falls, Minn. on a small family farm and in that small town she learned the rural skills that helped the family supply their own meat and vegetables while growing up. Trained as a nurse by the disciplined sisters at the St. Cloud Minn. Hospital, she carried that discipline and expectations of excellence to her children. While managing the household she still had time for landscaping the yard, daily meals and packing lunches for us 5, baking and making the 12 dozen chocolate chip cookies that we all treasure. Given a spare moment she added making cabbage patch style dolls, refinishing furniture and upholstering worn chairs and sofas to her talents. She has been a loving mother and has taught us all the blessings that hard work and doing for others can bring into our life. Since bragging about one's own accomplishments is against the principles Mom lives by, it is up to us, her kids to do it for her.
