She was loving, caring generous beyond imagination, a Christian homemaker, wife, mother, sister, daughter, and friend to all. She was absolutely the most kind, caring, and compassionate person to everyone she ever met. She always put herself last and remained kind hearted throughout many trials in her life. She always sought out the good in people and never focused on, or even mentioned, the negative. During her cancer treatments 22 years ago, she worked daily through her chemo treatments and radiation, never once complaining. She was an absolute warrior!!
Stargazer Lilies were her absolute favorite flower, she would love for people to send them if they wish or live plants to church where were having her service.
