My grandmother Doris was a wonderful woman. She grew up the second born of four siblings. She married Bill right out of High School. Their first child, Donald Lamar, was born with collapsed lungs and passed away shortly after birth. Bill and Doris had three more children. Bill died suddenly at age 33, leaving Doris a single mother of three small children. She taught herself how to drive and got a job doing office work. She raised her children alone in a time it was both uncommon and very difficult for a woman to do. She cared for both her parents as their health declined. She remarried a childhood friend, Earl Riggs, after her children were grown and out of the house. She cared for Earl's aging mother, and buried her second husband in 2000 when he lost his battle with cancer. When I was young we often had picnics in the fields on the farm she lived with her second husband, Earl. She was a great cook. Made the best red velvet cake in the world. She was patient.
