Loving Mother, Grandmother, and Faithful Servant to God, passed away peacefully in her home on Thursday, December 2, 2010 at the age of 66. Pink was born December 20, 1943 to Leslie and Lucille Root in Summit, New Jersey.
After high school, Pink moved to Washington State with her mother, brother and sister to be close to her eldest brother who was in the Air Force in Moses Lake, Washington. She then married and devoted her life to her three children.
Pink enjoyed the simple things in life, the arts, music and many outdoor activities such as waterskiing, snow-skiing and camping. Pink lived life to the fullest. Her greatest love was her family. The many accomplishments of her children and grandchildren created a delightful new focus that provided months and years of enjoyment becoming the sustenance and energy that she drew upon as she faced the health issues of recent years. She had the biggest and fullest heart and a smile that would light up the world. We will miss her dearly.
Pink was preceded in death by her mother and father and her older brother, Jim Root. She is survived by her sons, Michael and Mitchell (wife, Kathy); daughter, Michelle Gerheim (husband, Jim); brother, David Root (wife, Sandy); sister Gi Crandall (daughter, Stephanie); eleven grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
