A full life lived! Mom worked hard as a waitress for years to take care of us. She went on to get her appraisers license to provide a better life for us. She worked for Multnomah County and then Clark County until she retired.
For her 50 th Birthday she obtained her pilots license!
Mom enjoyed traveling, she took her grandkids Tyson, Craig and Kimberly on a cruise to Alaska! (What was she thinking)
Mom and Sandy took several cruises and numerous trips to Reno! They enjoyed playing Texas Holdem at the tournaments or would play locally.
Mom taught us many things and she was always there for all of us.
My favorite memory is how she always made Christmas Magical! Still my favorite holiday. She would spend hours making sure the tree was decorated her way! Hanging the rain one by one until it was perfect!
Making Christmas cookies, they had to be perfect too! So much fun spending the whole day making cookies!
Mom had 6 children, 14 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren, 1 great great grandchild. (This count was in 2015)
Numerous neices and nephews, definitely a big family and all loved her very much.
I will miss you! Love you mom,
April Mannix

My Mama AnaBelle. Always made Life fun. Up until the end she was always gracious and loving. As Anneliese said many Times. - We were the ones that were Blessed to have Spent time with Mom. Anneliese was my Mom's Legal Guardian she also was Moms Angel. She gave of herself over the last 5 plus years making sure Mom had the best of life. Every hospital visit , hospital stay she never left her side. She eased Moms fears. I love you Anneliese thank you for helping Mom through the dark Times and knowing just what to say . I Will forever miss her but her Spirit needed to fly - it was time.
I love you Mama Forever

The beautiful “Mrs. Walton”.
She was one of the prettiest women I’d ever seen.
Her daughter, April, was one of my best childhood friends, and I loved spending the night at their house. Mrs. Walton was always so sweet and friendly and always made me feel at home.
It’s probably been 50 years since I last saw her, but it seems like she has had an amazingly long life. What a blessing.
My thoughts are with April, Amy, and Annie.
