Interview with Josephine Mayes

What was she like?


Well, Ms. Glover, she was like the family. She was the mother for the entire family. She was always the one that had plenty energy, ready to go, whatever to be done, she was the mother for everybody because she was always, in rain or shine, cold or hot, she was just ready to move. You know, it didn't get to hot or too cold, it didn't rain to her. She would put on her boots, and she would put on her raincoat, and she would put on her hat and tie up her head and we would laugh at her and call her the old lady in the shoe and she said, "I got so many children I don't know what to do."
