Sounds like my grandmother. Five siblings and a family business which was a bakery. They had to do parts, my grandmother's part was the apples for pies and such. Lots of peeling and dough. Till the day that she died she hated the stuff, but liked every other desert, I can assure you.

She started working while middle aged for extra money, retired from that and then worked as a cashier, until she retired from that.

Not surprising to me, when she had died she had a considerable estate (which my aunt squandered...).

Grandma also got married at 16 years old, she was running away from the bakery and he was running away from the coal mines.

Amazing woman, my grandmother. I miss her.
