To all who are in any way responsible for my extreme honor - Taylor County Woman of the Year - I express sincere thanks.
To the Central Kentucky News-Journal who played such an important role, merchants who so bountifully bestowed upon me so many exciting gifts, friends who wrote letters, those who sent flowers and other gifts, friends who attended and shared my happiness at the lovely reception, Campbellsville High School and all my kids, the mayor and judge/executive for the proclamation, all the caring and kindness given me by so many.
I've lived in this community, full-time, for 75 years and am proud of its growth, past and present. I've touched a lot of lives in those years but I've been touched as well. I couldn't have done it alone. I'm totally blessed.
