Aline was affectionately nicknamed “The Queen” by her family. She ruled the family imparting her wisdom and expectations while shaking her left index finger at you to emphasize her point in the most loving tone laced with sassiness. Aline never accepted less than perfection. She set the example of strong faith for her family. She loved her church and the weekly visits from the church groups and members. Her other loves were vegetable and flower gardening as well as canning and freezing vegetables for winter use. Each summer Wilson and Aline grew enough vegetables to share with many neighbors and friends. They were always giving back to the community they loved. Aline will always be remembered for her beautiful sweet smile.
