Jossie as she was called by all the locals was a self-sufficient, strong- willed, independent woman. She lived alone for 50 years providing for her needs by raising cattle, hogs, and butchering and canning enough vegetables to get her through the long winters.
She drank from a spring that ran year round. The water allowed her to raise a large garden and provide for the animals she raised.

There are several book written about this extraordinary woman I can't wait to read them.
