She meant more to us than words can describe. She had many joys in life, and loved to laugh at every opportunity. She enjoyed cross stitch, which if you knew her, you probably already know this. She liked to read, and enjoyed talking on the phone to her best friend, June, of 70 years. She was kind, thoughtful, loving, caring, and very humorous. Most of all, she loved spoiling her great-grandchildren, and even her older grandchildren.

She is survived by two daughters Nancy and Diane, granddaughters Melina, Gretchen and Gabrielle and her bonus grandson Michael, along with three great-grandchildren - Mason, Makayla, and Riley. .
