You were a very remarkable lady.You had a witty sense of humor, a memory like no other, who loved her family thru the good & the the bad. Your strength, humbleness, and your "slight" stubbornness will be remembered by all. I'm thankful for knowing you. Our hearts are heavy. Our memories are priceless. You will forever hold a special place in the hearts of many, myself included. My sympathies go out to your family and friends. We all loved you very much!! We all will miss you even more! You will never be forgotten! Love, Beth, Eryn and Evan (We ❤ you All!) 💐🌹🌻🌷🌺💮🌾🪴🌼🌺🍀🙏❤
Peggy, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. Reading her obituary she was one blessed woman with family. May the good memories of her bring a smile to your face as you remember her. Praying for you at this time.
Mom you're so missed. I know you and Dad are together now and you are pain free. Our pain still hurts, we will heal and go on with life, but having no parents is rough. Praying you and dad continue to protect us, watch over us, and make sure we're all doing OK. ❤
