It was while she was a teenager that she was introduced on a blind date to a man that was soon to become the love of her life Herbert Cowham. After three dates they soon were married on June 15, 1952. Upon her marriage to Herb she became a member of the Does Elks Lodge 310 in 1952. They then went on to establish a home and a family with 5 children.
She was an amazing and very loving wife, the best Mother, and an even better Grand Mother. She was always there to welcome anybody into her home with her arms and her heart wide open. She had a heart of gold. She will be forever loved and never forgotten. Her legacy will forever live on in the lives of those who loved her so much. The memories shared will last a lifetime.
