At 82 years old it was nothing for her to drive to Fayetteville to attend dance recitals or to Dallas for speeches, and ball games. She attended all high school graduations and university graduations that included Stanford, Georgetown, Vanderbilt, and the University of Arkansas. She never missed anything in which her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren participated.
