Mrs. Tidwell was an artistic person; having the ability to look at items and recreate them herself. At one time she took a barn window that had 9 panes of glass and made each pane into different scenes, cutting pieces of wood to make everything from trees to seesaws. She was gifted by being able to hear a song and after a few minutes play it on a piano, yet she never had a lesson.
Her true passion however was for Genealogy. Jimmy said he can remember she spent numerous Saturdays in a library, state archives and even cemeteries finding out where they came from. Mrs. Tidwell was able to research her side of the family back to the 1600's and her husband's side back to the 1500's. This was all before the numerous website; back when you spent time looking though books and mircofilm.
In addition to her parents, Mrs. Tidwell is preceded in death by her husband, James Leroy Tidwell; brother, Rex Maurice Mayes and sister, Theresa Flint.
She is survived by her son, Jimmy Lee Tidwell and numerous nieces and nephews.
