Glenna Goodacre’s sculpture of a mother and child represents the hopes and dreams of those who settled our country. This sculpture is a fitting tribute to Maxine Blankenship, loving wife, mother, and grandmother, a woman of quiet determination and strength who possessed a love for art and beauty.

Donated by the Blankenship Family in memory of Maxine Blankenship
