Mom made everyone feel special through birthday cards, gifts, decorated cakes, delicious meals and clothing she sewed. She was always ready for a friendly, but competitive game of cards and weekly bingo was a given. Laughter and good conversation around the table and many trips were enjoyed with family and friends. Her infectious smile and twinkle in her eye, will be remembered by all. We will miss her thoughtful nature. Her wisdom and faith will be treasured. Blessed be her memory!
