Samuel's wife, she is small, slender and self-contained, mother to nine children, four boys and five girls. She "had a finely developed sense of sin. ... She was suspicious of fun. ... She felt that people having a good time were wide open to the devil. ... She had no spark of humor and only occasionally a blade of cutting wit. ... She suffered bravely and uncomplainingly through life, convinced that that was the way her God wanted everyone to live. She felt that rewards came later."
