An Amazing Lady Who I Call Mom

My mom, JoVeta Ruth Wescott, is an amazing woman! Mom has accomplished so much in her life and has influenced her 6 kids lives as well. Mom is a nurturer, a nurse, a crafter, a counselor, she was a taxi driver for many years, a Scout leader, a student, a dream maker as my son Jeremy calls her, a chef (her fried chicken was better than Colonel Sanders!), and about anything else you can think of! Here's a few photo's I'd like to share of my memories of my mom.
My mom graduated from Nursing School while being married and having at least 2 of us kids.

We always went to mass on Sunday's and us girls never went an Easter without a new handmade Easter dress.
Mom and I took Stretch-n-Sew class together and she helped me make my prom dress for my Junior prom. The dress was a swimsuit pattern that we converted into a dress pattern.


Our house that mom made into a home



Mom made the dresses for my sisters to where in my wedding.


My mom is has been very successful in her nursing carrer. She is an RN and has a Masters Degree.


Mom made every holiday so special. There was always a huge dinner that mom spent days making and gifts out the whazoo. All 6 of us kids, our spouses, grandkids and their spouses and great grandkids have a handmade stocking.



When mom came to New York to visit us one summer we had so much fun! She took us to the Statue of Liberty and other places around New York.

When I had Jace my mom came to help me. She was always right there when I had a baby and helped take care of the other kids as well.

This is my mom last Christmas wearing the apron I made for her.
Thanks Mom for being such a great role model and mom to us kids.
Thanks for all the times you were there for me and my kids.
Thanks for just being you!
Oh yeah, if any of my siblings read this
I'm Mom's Favorite!!
Hee!Hee!

Wow, Sherry, you have so much to be proud of your mom for. She looks like an amazing 'Super Woman'! She has accomplished so much in her life and still has time to care for her family. She is an inspiration! Twyla
