Love was her biggest virtue. She whole-heartedly loved her family. She had a special joy in her heart for children and they adored her as well. Most of all she treasured being a Mother and Nana. She especially enjoyed time spent with family on holidays and special events.
In her younger years, she had a love for her horses and the outdoors. In her adult life her hobbies were sewing, flower gardening, helping with home projects, and keeping everything perfectly tidy. During her empty nest years she worked at Kmart in apparel and as electronics manager. She enjoyed RV travel in retirement years. She was an avid and faithful daily walker at FBC.
Her smile, love and wisdom will long be treasured by all that knew her.
Her children arise and call her blessed. Proverbs 31:28.
