Mother's Cranberry Bread

This recipe has been in Mother's recipe box for as long as I can remember.  Mother bakes this bread every Thanksgiving holiday.  It's the best cranberry bread, ever.  Not being home for Thanksgiving so much anymore, I bake it myself, only I add mini dark chocolate chips to the recipe.
