Lib was born Thursday, October 7, 1926, in Stecoah, North Carolina, the daughter of Cashies Fish and Martha Jane Fish. She worked at the Georgia Institute for the Blind for over 20 years. She loved deep-sea fishing, catfishing, and spending time on the boat. Lib made the best cathead biscuits that anyone ever tasted. You could find her riding the motorcycle, even outside of the yard that she was supposed to stay in.
