Mom was born March 27, 1938. She met Arthur Underwood and they were married October 20, 1955. Mom received her education in the Allendale District. She was fortunate to enjoy a life where she was never working outside the home; thus devoting her time to her children. Mom enjoyed knitting and crocheting and her grandchildren were recipients of an afghan. Mom loved to go to McDonald’s for coffee. She was a faithful TV watcher of the Young and the Restless as well as game shows. Mom never passed up a good drink. She will be great missed by many.
