Willa's home in Englewood was central to activities of her children and neighbors. A wonderful coal burning stove in the dining room was often surrounded in  winter.  Her brother sent nephew, Arsene, to stay with
the family at 6047 Ada whenever a quarantine threatened his attendance at school.  
Willa kept her family together and they stayed together during her lifetime.
Son, Archie B., tells of the time a cat got in the oven and was baked because no one knew the cat was in there when the oven was preheated.  Archie had a dog which had to be muzzled and put up when visitors came.
