Notes:  Bessie said that when she was a young girl her family relied on a horse for transportation and she would often ride the horse bareback.

She enjoyed knitting, puzzles, watching soap operas, and babysitting her grandchildren.  She also loved her pet budgie birds — and kept their cage by a window so they could see outdoors.

Bessie did not attend church, but she always wore a crucifix necklace.  In about 1965 she lost all of her belongings in a house fire; thankfully no one was hurt.
