Our Mom loved to sit and play card games for hours, especially cribbage in person or online. Mom's love for baking always meant we had something to snack on. Mom would hide her scratch tickets on us girls so we wouldn't scratch them on her, lol. You wouldn't see Mom without her cup of tea that she loved and enjoyed so much. The love our Mom showed her family was seen all over her home. Mom also loved Elvis Presley so much.
We will miss you Mom, Sister, Grandmother and Aunt .
Cremation has taken place under the Care and Direction of Forest Haven Memorial Gardens
