“This beautiful, loving lady was the sweetest person, no one could have had such an impact, such a blessing to have had her in our life. She pleasantly moved everyone she knew. When you met with her, her smile, those amazing green eyes and her loving soft voice, melted everyone’s worries away. If ever there were a hard time, she would make everything all right. She utterly loved her life, her grandchildren, her children and especially her husband. She’s the greatest grandma, wife, mother, friend, and sister, a classic lady. She had everything in life she could want and need. She has lived an amazing life in her short 56 years, more than someone could ever live in 100 years,” writes her family.
