Lois Estelle Love Robershaw

Mom was born August 13, 1907 in Clay County, Alabama. Her parents were George Francis Love and Sylvia Josephine Nance, they had a total of 12 children of which seven lived to adulthood. Mom was the fifth oldest. Mom only finished the seven grade, however that was quiet well for a girl being raised on a farm back then. She played the guitar with her other bros. at barn dances etc.
Her first love was her Church. She was a member of the Free Will Baptist , she would attend other Church’s where she loved the People, but they wouldn’t follow the Bible and have a foot washing Service!! There was never any gray area’s in Mom’s life about right or wrong, she was a strong believer in the 10 Commandants as a guideline. And I must confess when we children got in trouble, there was never any doubt in our minds, we new what we did was wrong! I don’t think the spanking we got hurt our self–esteem, it hurt just a little lower than that.
Mom married O B Robershaw, September 25, 1926 in Wetumpka, Alabama. Dad hired a taxi and they ran away to the Justice of the Peace, about the time the ceremony finished her Mom Josephine showed up with Lois’s younger sister Barsie, { who had told on Lois }to try and stop the wedding. Since they were already married, her Mom told her “ it will never work out”. I guess Mom and Dad set out to prove her wrong, at the time of Mom’s death they had been married 68 years!!!
