Going shopping, taking a trip to the casino, or just shopping by an estate sale were a few of the many hobbies she enjoyed.
No matter what words we use to describe her, she was a rock star who lived everyday to the fullest. Who ever met her knows that she was an amazing, loving, caring, straight to the point, and down to earth woman. She was the best wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and a good friend to all who knew her.
We will truly miss her, she touched all of our lives and will be forever in our hearts and memories.
