Mom was a kind, caring, generous, funny lady, who loved her family and raised us along with dad, to cherish and take care of each other. We adored our parents. Mom was a very devout Catholic and a proud member of St. Francis de Sales Church for over 55 years. Mom showed us her fighting spirit and willingness to overcome. Her wish was to be in her home, and with her family's help, she was able to. She enjoyed life, spent a lot of time with her family and she made us laugh daily. If asked how she was doing? She would hold up a sign saying "I'm Okay".
