Henrietta was a Renaissance woman. Learning and mastering innumerable endeavors throughout her lifetime. She tried, tackled and mastered just about anything from traditional homemaking skills like cooking, sewing, crocheting, knitting and even tatting; gardening, canning and upholstery; to fishing, archery, hunting and tanning hides; to butchering and plate making for the government during WWII. She never met an animal she couldn’t cook (except possum). After retirement, Mama and Papa bought a motor home and hit the road. They loved their extensive travels and adventures from Florida to Alaska and many points in between.
