Ada, you were firm yet fair. I admired your confident, serene attitude. You wouldn't take gruff from any one and yet you were warm and welcoming. You were a unique combination of personality traits. You and Jim raised a fine family. God Bless you.

I visited many years ago just saw this article. It makes me sad and I know she will be missed. I hope her work can continue!

I visited Austin's Goat Farm about 8 years ago when I was a patient at the nearby Mayo Clinic. This was truly one of the most magical experiences of my life! Ada Austin sure seemed like one awesome lady. She showed us around, told us about the operation, and we walked away with several large bags of her products and a fun memory. Every time I wear my awesome mohair socks I think about what a great tour that was (I got to hold a baby goat!). Such a great memory, and absolutely the highlight of my time at the Mayo Clinic. I mean, it was an absolute respite to have that experience when I was sick and miserable. Ada Austin, in the very short time I met her many years ago, impressed me as a one-of-a-kind, dynamic, genuine person. If she made such a big imprint on a random customer like me, I can only imagine how her life touched her family and friends. I came across this obituary while looking to get more socks! And I am so sorry to hear of her passing. What a cool lady.

Thank you so much for all the kind comments about mom. We really do appreciate it. I have been so fortunate to get to know more of moms friends and customers through the socks. I have had so many people as me "Do you have time for a story?" Always something interesting and fun comes from that sentence. Keep em coming!
You can still get her socks, just call 618-954-9483.
