She lived in the home of her daughter Pearl, the last 15 years of her life and was called "wee Grannie" by her great granchildren. I remember her crying silently as my mother (Pearl) was getting beans ready to can. My mother put a big pan of beans in Grandma's lap and asked her to get them ready them strung , cut and ready for the jars. Grandma hummed happily as she worked on them and if we had to pull a few strings out of our teeth and eat irregularly cut beans, it certainly didn't hurt us a bit. She had glaucoma and cataracts and also was very deaf from quite a young age. Her father, Jackson F. Smith married Lavancha Lenora Moon 21 Dec 1859, in Iowa Co. IA.
