We will always treasure your beautiful smile, your spunk, wittiness and your sweet nature. You will be missed dearly by family and friends. Mom/grandma – your love and strength inspired us to be who we are today. You will be in our hearts forever.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date with family and friends.
