She grew up in a farming community, working from an early age following the traditions of her culture.  Nanie mothered five beautiful children while living in her home country. She met Frankie Carver through a correspondence (pen-pal) club, and they eventually married on October 12, 1973.  She and Frankie made their home together in Canadian and had three beautiful daughters. Nanie worked at Canadian ISD and Alexander’s Deli.  She loved to bake and share her knowledge of baking and decorating cakes.  Prior to email and social media,  Nanie wrote many letters to her children and family in the Philippines. She also visited them as often as possible. With current technology she was able to video chat with all her children and many of her grandchildren daily.  Nanie was a member of the First Christian Church.  She also enjoyed watching old movies, sewing and working in her rose garden.  She loved her family, spending time with them, and especially loved singing to and rocking her grandbabies.
