She was a loving wife, mom and grandmother. She had an infectious laugh that could light up a whole room, loving arms that could cure any hurting and a good joke to keep up with her grandchildren. She loved crafting, sewing, being around her pond, sweet treats and card games with her family and her beloved dog, Sammy. She was her grandkids biggest fan and great friend.
