She was born Oct. 7, 1935, in Milo, Mo., the daughter of Howard E. and Kathryn Marie Eisenhower.

Orum Baptist Church and they were married Oct. 25, 1953, at the Paint Creek Church. After a short term in the Army, they moved to the farm southeast of Uniontown where they farmed and raised two children.
She enjoyed many activities such as leading singing at church and specials at weddings and funerals. Most years she raised a large garden, loved fishing whenever she could and coached girls softball at Uniontown summer league. She was always sewing things for the family and was a great cook. She always had dogs and cats that she enjoyed very much.
