It is with great pride and sadness we send off our beautiful mother to heaven to join our father Joe and sister Maggie. Our mother was pure love and an angel walking on earth. She had a way of making each and every member of her family feel like they were the most important person on earth in her presence. We will miss her each and every day until we are united again. Thank you momma for the unconditional love you gave us all. Visitation will be held on Sunday, October 4, 2015 from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm with a Vigil at 6:00 pm at Hillcrest Funeral Home 1060 N.
