Prayers for the repose of the soul of very religious women and a lover of our mother Mary! As her former pastor, I named her “the rock” of her family! A woman who answered the call to do whatever is needed in the church: lead the music on Sunday, lector, teach religious education and help couples with pre cana instruction, a generous and kind woman! I enjoyed her cooking! We will miss her but glad we have a prayer warrior in heaven
