A stout woman she is who although not fat is fairly well rounded, but that of course is expected of a woman her age

She’s very much a mother and one tough woman, sometimes it’s like she’ll never die. She’s rarely sick and says it’s her mother’s Fortian blood in her that makes her so. She strong and not just physically but mentally, she won’t let anything get her down and most insults just roll off her back, that is until they are personal.
