Along with her beloved husband and children, she will be deeply missed by her 13 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren who affectionately referred to her as “Nana.” We are all better people for knowing her. Her example gave us a strong foundation upon which to grow. We are so grateful the Lord made us a family.
The family would like to thank Torrie from Sun Tree Hospice for genuine love, support, and guidance. She was our angel of the moment. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Susan G. Koman Foundation fight for Breast Cancer.
