She was a joy to anyone who met her. She loved people and was so Christ-like with all of her brothers and sisters. She knew her neighbors and would take care of anyone that walked through her door. If she knew you, you were her friend and a friend for life. She was active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved walks in the fresh Montana air, foot rubs on her arthritic feet, rock hounding, ATV rides, sewing, family history, any kind of puzzle, pinochle, being with family and she was the queen of garage sales. She will be terribly missed.
