The family would like to extend great thanks to Dr. Roberta Henshaw at Shannon Medical Center and the staff and doctors at the West Texas Renal Center for their years of service. The family would also like to thank Angels Home Health Services, the San Angelo Paramedics, and the staff at Shannon Hospital that cared for her in her final hours, especially Dr. Melissa Powell.
She will be greatly missed but is now with the Lord where there is no more sickness or pain.
The family asks that memorials be sent to First United Methodist Church or a charity of their choice.
