Our sweet Mother was born on August 15th, 1927 in the tiny town of Enon, Arkansas in the hills of the Ozarks. Her parents were William Lloyd and Gladys Blevins, hard working farmers and tobacco growers. She grew up there with her dear sister and best friend, Marie. In an area and era where few women (or men) graduated High School and went on to College our Mom did both. She attended Southwest Missouri State Teacher’s College and taught school for two years before marrying the love of her life, OB Bradley. Blessed with good health and a loving partner they were married on February 7th, 1947 and celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary this year.
