Grandma was always an example of what a strong Christian woman should be. She was headstrong and committed to her faith and family. Even with her strong personality and sometimes brash words she always had kind (yet honest) advice to give. I love you Grandma and I'm going to miss you beyond measure.

My favorite memory of my Nana was every Sunday at church, she would encourage me and my sisters to give a testimony of how great God has been in our lives. She was strong believer in Christ. I’m so thankful that she was my grandmother.
