FEATURED POET FEBRUARY AND MARCH 2011
I was born in 1924, in Alexis, Illinois, but was raised in Smithfield, where I went to a one-room school. I currently reside in Peoria, Illinois.
I graduated from Liberty Beauty School but worked at Caterpillar three times and also did underwriting for Auto-Owners Insurance for 13 years.
Although I haven’t written much poetry myself, I always enjoyed the poetry club meetings and encouraging my husband George to write.
