Born April 20, 1948, in Washington, she was the daughter of Charles and Ethel (Vantlin) Small. Her parents preceded her as well as her beloved aunt and uncle, Geneva "Nena" and Fred "Butch" Like.
In the early years of marriage, she loved to babysit other people's children. She treated them like her own. In her 24 years working at Walmart, she treated her customers well and made many friends. Whatever role she played, she did it well. Whether mother, daughter, sister, aunt, wife, grandmother, or friend, she spoiled us all. She cherished being a mother and loved her children and was there for them always. She loved spending time with her beloved Joe and her cats.
