What a life devoted to education, like your own, Carolyn. We wish we could keep these salt-of-the-earth farm girls around forever. Bless 'em!

Aunt Monita modeled strength, faith and integrity. I have so many wonderful memories of being at the farm. Of course, she would have the most delicious meals and sometimes I got to sit at the grown-up table with the beautiful china. I will never forget having her shortcake biscuits with fresh strawberries and Uncle Pete scooping the cream off the top of the fresh milk he had brought in the house. Ambrosia! My heart melts thinking about her love of my Mom and always being such a good, big sister. I have been on retreat at a monastery in New Mexico and there was a celebration of All Soul's Day - we prayed for Aunt Monita on her voyage Home. With love, Denise

My sympathy to you girls. Your mom certainly had a long full life.
We used to try and pull things over on her in school snd she always caught us.
Had a few words for us that always followed with a shake of the head and a smile. Peace, Mrs Ebersole

I was so sorry to hear about Monita. We had made many trips together as UMW district officers. She showed her faith to everyone. The family has my deepest sympathies.
