The measure of ones life as a wife, mother, grandmother, and friend cannot be gauged or distilled into brief sound bytes of past career accomplishments, yet her love of flowers, singing, travel, children and grandchildren are but a few cherished interests she had. She was more to her family than words can say. She lived the full life she chose, faithful and perennially optimistic even to the last; she leaves us with many fond memories and will be missed by those whose life she touched, even in her last weakened state of health. She is whole now and in the presence of God, it is in this that we rejoice and give thanks to the One who gave mercy and grace and welcomed her into eternity with Him and the memories we have of her.
