She was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandma. She taught all her girls to Cook, Sew and make crafts and loved spending time with all children. She was also known by all for her wonderful cooking!! She delighted in preparing meals for others to enjoy and was an excellent host. It was said of her by her family “Mom cooks up a storm” and she wanted everyone to have plenty!

Most importantly was her love for Jesus and how she showed that love to all and taught others how to love! She was a generous giving person who would do anything for anyone and will be missed by so many. A verse that she lived by was Matt. 25:40 ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
