She was known for her service in the church. She had a passion for cooking, right up to her last days on the earth, she was thinking about cooking. Christmas was always special because she loved to make candy, cookies and pies. She was an avid reader. She loved nature and enjoyed watching the quail, and rabbits and looking at the beautiful flowers in her back yard. Her real joy was talking to her younger brother James Youngblood on the phone.
