Her mother Mrs. Anna Reese Jarvis was a minister s daughter and taught Sunday School for 20 years in the Andrews Methodist Church of Grafton West Virginia. The younger Anna Jarvis was only twelve years old when she listened to her mother s wish during a Sunday school lesson on mothers in the Bible that one day someone would found a memorial mother s day. There were many days of observance for men but none for women.
