Dear Kathy & family -
I am so sorry to learn of your dear mom’s passing. I can’t help but recall how fondly and lovingly you spoke of her. She leaves quite a legacy in you “kids”, the grands and greats. Thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.

85 years ago a special woman was born and would impact each and every one of us in a very special way. We called her Mother, Grandma, Sister, Aunt, or Friend. We lost her presence in our lives but she left us many special memories to treasure. Our deepest sympathy to the family. She was a great lady and will be missed by all.💞
