It is often said of great women, that their love of family, friends and the Lord reaches far beyond this life. Mother was one of these great women. She had such a capacity for joy and happiness. She saw only the good in everyone. We all loved her so much and always felt her home was a safe haven.

God took the warmth of a summer sun,
The generous soul of nature,
The majesty of a tree,
The calm of a quiet sea.
Then God combined these qualities.
His masterpiece was now complete.
He lovingly called her Mother.

Funeral services will be held Friday, January 19, 2007 at 12 Noon in the Salina LDS Stake Center, 98 West 400 North in Salina.
