Mom was born July 4, 1936 in Oletha Texas, the
eleventh of twelve children, to James Jackson and Gertrude Alford - yes, she
was a firecracker all her life. She was raised in Fairfield and Thornton Texas.
Mom moved to Grand Prairie Texas and lived with her sister, our Aunt Bonnie,
where she met the love of her life, our dad, Lee Roy. They were married in 1953
and had us two children. In 1970, they settled in Mansfield where they called
home and lived a long and happy life together. Mom spent her married life
raising us and taking care of her family.
She loved gardening. She and dad had a large
garden every summer. Mama loved to read, she loved to paint and she loved many
different craft projects. We love you mama and miss you so much.
