So many wonderful adventures...Biblical scholar/ Spiritual mentor - shared her expertise of cooking, canning, flower & vegetable gardening, humming birds, master jigsaw puzzle solver (3D), chess, road trip driving games. Hettie enjoyed conversations and kidding with everyone she encountered daily; she truly showed the love of Christ. Growing up in California she enthusiastically collected autographs ...Lawrence Welk was her favorite. We had a memorable adventure to P Allen Smiths’ Moss Mountain to purchase Heritage Poultry (Hettie called high priced chickens) for my hobby farm. Hettie started a conversation with P Allen Smith by asking for his autograph; he was stunned but impressed when she showed her “Autograph Book “ filled with many famous stars . P Allen was so mesmerized by Hettie he personally helped us choose my 2 new flocks. Hettie charmed everyone with her genuine kindness and JOY of LIFE...
