Born with a natural ability to turn an ordinary day into a sticky situation.
Making no apologies for simply doing a job, feeding her family, making a living in the family business.
A taste for finer things exceeded only by a drive to go after what she wanted.
Never loved, rarely respected, never hearing praise for her fine meticulous labor.
Often it seemed her work was ignored by others or simply brushed away with a dismissive hand.
Yet she endured and each time she began anew, she anticipated that her next project would be even greater.
