She was a warm, loving wife, devoted mother and grandmother and a very caring person to her family and friends. Our mother exercised loyalty and devotion to every person whose life she touched. The love and strength she gave to people inspired courage. The spunk developed independence and drive in her children. Our lives are better because of the woman she was and the people she expected us to be. We are grateful that God chose her to be our mother and know that she'll one day cradle us again.
