Yosemite grandma enjoys life with grandchildren

Yosemite — Sandra Haste Buis prepared corn for freezing while spending some time with her granddaughters and the family pets.

“I got it from the Mennonites over at Argyle and it’s some of the best I’ve seen,” says the resident of Bethelridge, near the Casey-Pulaski line. Buis, 58, and a recent retiree from corrections work, says she has been employed at numerous places in Somerset, including Palm Beach, Roses, and McDonalds.

“I’ve always held two jobs at a time,” she says. One of 12 children of the late Andrew and Myrtle Haste, she and all her siblings sing gospel and Bluegrass together as “The Haste Family.” Ages range from 50 to 75 among the nine females and three males. Grandchildren are Destiny, nine, and Autumn Hatter, six (holding doll) of nearby Yosemite.
