and a beloved grandmother and great-grandmother. She filled her days caring for her loved
ones. It was very rare for her to miss any activity they were involved in. She cheered from the
stands as she watched them twirl, dance, cheer and play football and baseball. She hosted
every holiday, but made Christmas Eve especially magical for all the children in her life.

will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her.
