We lost an amazing woman today! Mommom you were one spunky, stubborn (in a good way), loving, kind, funny, a heck of a strong woman. You brought a smile to everyone’s face. You loved your family especially your great grandkids. We will celebrate your life and that you are with Jesus. You will forever be missed and will remain in our hearts until we meet again one day.
If you had gotten the chance to meet her, she had many stories to tell, and no one left the house hungry. She absolutely loved us all and we loved her back. Thank you everyone for your prayers and thoughts. Mommom is now in heaven with a new body happier than ever.
