Throughout her life she worked hard to provide for her family. Some of her favorite pastimes were cooking, sewing, knitting, women's roller derby - knew all the teams & everyone on them!, Lawrence Welk (never missing a show), playing card games - mainly canasta & pinochle. Mostly she was a simple woman who loved life, her friends & being w/her family. During her illness she received the love & support of her family.

There is a hole in our hearts where your love used to be. Now we try & fill it with cherished memories. We will love you & miss you until our time has expired.
