Her straight forward manner, honesty, wit, sense of adventure, love for her family and love for the Lord were among her most endearing qualities making her the extraordinary woman we remember. She worked hard throughout her life for her family and accomplished many things. However, nothing made her more proud than her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren. The overwhelming joy they brought her was evident to anyone who met her.
