Mom was a strong woman. She always had a very giving nature and looked for the best and others. Took care of the household and six children that at times made it look so easy. She always encouraged us to do the best that we could do. Make sure that we were involved in all kinds of activities and sports to be well-rounded people.
She showed me how to be a strong Christian woman. Her faith, her love for my Dad, love for her children, grandchildren, step-grandchildren and great grand child was never failing.
We have all the memories of her we will keep in our hearts. I'm very blessed to have her as my Mother. She is the voice in my head that continues to encourage me and keep me on the straight and narrow.
She will be missed, but my joy is that she is with God , Dad and those that have gone before her family and friends.

If there were any finer people that John and Betty Rinehart I for sure didn't know them. They took me into their home when I felt so lost and helped and advised me along the way. I will miss them so much until the day when I go home at last and will see them again.

I pray for peace for Kathy, Gail, Debbie, Chuck, Fred and Sally. I know loosing a Mother, especially like her, is one of the hardest things we have to go thru but putting faith in the Lord will help.

I'll never forget her homemade pizza, she used to send it for lunch and we thought it was the best we ever had, even tho it was cold I loved it.

May God bless and keep you all.
