She loved cake baking, especially for her grandchildren’s birthdays. She also enjoyed crafting with her grandchildren and enjoyed watching her kids and grandchildren’s sporting and music events. 

One of her greatest joys in life was raising her kids and watching them parent their kids. She loved being a Wife, Mom and Grandma and she was the best!

Mom, we will raise our children and grandchildren to know God and we will see you again. 

And you will always be…”The prettiest Mom in the Whole Wide World, we love you and you’re Good Lookin”
