What are you most likely to be doing on a rainy day?

Reading, usually history books, primarily U.S. history.

What person of history do you admire most?

Teddy Roosevelt. I just read “The Big Burn” and it really impressed me. He was so far ahead of his time on the idea of conservation.

What’s your favorite book?

The Bible. It gives us hope and teaches us how we should live our lives.

If you weren’t involved with the museum, what would you be doing?

I’m already doing a lot of things — I do genealogy for people; I work at the church and St. Vincent De Paul; I have a book club; and I’m a member of the Daughters of the American Legion. I have a lot going on.

If you could live in another time period, which would you choose?

I’m really happy living where I’m at. I’ve done enough reading over the years to know how hard it was to live during other times. It wasn't easy, especially for the women who had to raise the family and work in the field and everything they had to do from morning until dusk. It was a hard life.

If you could only eat one food a day, what would it be?

Well they say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. No matter what you choose though, you'd get pretty sick of it if that's all you ate.

What would the name of your autobiography be?

I actually wrote that already and I believe it was titled, “My Life.” That was close to 10 years ago.
