A Strong Women


 “Appalachia life in the foot hills  of Kentucky  produced physically and mentally strong women".

 Women that, knew what  hard work was, and what it took to get a job done.

Appalachia women, didn't mind rolling up their sleeves, and taking on the hardest of work.

My Aunt Birdie Schell was such a women.

Birdie had always been a hard worker ever since she was a little girl.

She was born into that kind of life style.

 Anyone can be strong, "man or woman", if they put their mind to it, was Aunt Birdie's way of thinking.

Often times Aunt Birdie,handled 100 lb. bags of feed, to fill up the feeders for the cattle.

Doing her part of hard work on the farm

A lot of men would struggle with that one.

Whether Appalachian women were in the forefront of everyday chores, or taking the children to Sunday school.

They still  found time to do their house work, raise their children and cook for the family.


Aunt Birdie was one of  those kind of women.

There didn't seem to be much Aunt Birdie couldn't do, when she set her mind to it.

Until Next Time.   God Bless.
