Her family remembers her as a loving wife and mother who dedicated her life to her family. She was a beautiful spirit who greeted everyone with open arms and a smile. She enjoyed traveling, watching novelas, game shows, bingo, and going to the casino. She cherished the handmade gifts from her husband, gardens, plants, flowers and her little dog sweetie bear. She was gentle, kind and lived life by the golden rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” Matthew 7:12, Luke 6:31, which she displayed when spending time with her family. Most of all, she lived her life loving her beloved family and her husband of sixty-one years. She was an amazing woman who was a friend and confidant. She was warm, caring, understanding, clever, and witty. She was loved by her family and will be greatly missed. She was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church.
