Mom was a devoted mother and grandma who enjoyed cooking favorite family meals, shopping for that special gift or treat, and making each celebration warm and inviting. Christmas was her favorite season. As a grandma, she enjoyed cheering for her grandchildren at sporting events, attending their school activities, and giving lots of hugs.
Mom shared a beautiful marriage with dad for 71 years, strong in faith, deep in love. Their marriage was a guiding light for us. Their love remained for each other until the end, when she preceded Dad in death by 22 hours.
Mom’s hugs, smiles, and celebrations will be deeply missed. Although our hearts are broken, we know that she is where she needs to be – by dad’s side in eternity.
