Her daughter, Tracy was my beloved college roommate. Her daughter Chrissy was a local friend. I recall her visiting us at college and she and tracy chatting over a cold beer. I am in awe of how well she passed her crafting talents on to Tracy and Chrissy and look how many folks they have impacted with their talents! What an impact on our world! A life lived fully and well.

Wishing comfort to the whole family

So sorry for your loss.

Your mother was a remarkable woman. You were lucky to have her for as long as you did.

Thinking of you as you celebrate her life with your family.
