Our hearts are broken to hear of the loss of such a wonderful person. Always caring, always there, always a bright ray of sunshine. She was our "sister" and our friend and we will miss her dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are withgo Tyler, Jim, Mr. & Mrs. Wozniak and all of her family. An angel was taken from us but we know she will always be looking down and smiling upon all of us.

Mother, companion, daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin & friend. Thank you for enriching our lives. So many people love you and will miss you terribly. I believe we were all so lucky to have known you. Of all of your wonderful qualities, I loved your smile; your laugh and your sense of humor the most. Although we lived 1,700 miles away, we've always had an undeniable connection that we both found very amusing. I'll always treasure that connection and will never forget it. I'm grateful you were a part of our lives for 48 years.
Until we meet again,
Your cousin,
