She was a loving and dedicated Mother and Grandmother who put her family's happiness before her own.  She will be deeply missed, but never forgotten by all those who loved and knew her.  She possessed a heart of gold and was full of love, and shared it with all who entered her home.  Her door was always open to anyone that was hungry, or needed financial or spiritual guidance.
