with. She was humble and kind. She loved to cook, and opened her doors to many. The best
thing she loved was being a Momma. Her grandchildren had a special place in her heart and
she spoke of them often. She will always be remembered for her smile, encouraging words she
spoke, and the remarkable courage and faith she maintained throughout her life.
