Local celebrity and Arizona foodie Jan D’Atri discovered another Arizona
cook and in the process discovered a special person. Lucille Howard, grandmother of Arizona Farm Bureau’s Julie Murphree, was well known for her pies. So, Jan recently featured Grandma Howard’s pies on her blog.
Jan also profiled some of Julie’s favorite stories about her grandma. Grandma Howard’s rural roots and farm girl work ethic set a life well lived that has now had significant impact on following generations. So, maybe agriculture roots do run deep.
