She was a member of the First Church of God and the “Block Captain” of Barrington Court. She entered heaven on Mother’s Day after a short illness. As she received her wings and greeted her Lord, she heard Him say, “Welcome! Well done my faithful servant.” She enjoyed reading, going to the hairdresser, Friday night at the Eagles, Sunday morning at church, dinners in the back yard, bird watching, and visiting with family and friends in her later years. She was a mother to many softball players and a friend to all. Please join us in Sissy’s celebration of life on Saturday, May 15, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. at 8 Barrington Court, Pueblo, CO.

Oh Sissy
I still cherish the memory of going to Sports Garden after mass and having a wonderful Bloody Mary made by Sissy and our chit chats during that time

I am so blessed to have known Sissy. I first met her many years ago at the Sportsgarden. Then had the pleasure of seeing her at The Eagles #145 with Mona. She always had a big smile and hug ready for me
She was such a beautiful soul and will be deeply missed. May she rest in peace 🙏
