Great, Great Grandchilden:
She was a loving soul who loved to cook, bake, view old classic TV and movies and especially the Hallmark Christmas Channel. She loved to read and enjoyed the romance novels. She was an adventurer where she camped in Ouray, CO in a tent, visited the Grand Canyon more than once by foot, train and car. She enjoyed living in Las Vegas, near her son and daughter and played of course, the penny slot machines and bingo! She loved Christmas, the lights, making arts and crafts for the house, for the tree and giving them as presents.
The family would like to thank the Dr.s, Nurses, carehouse, PtoT and ST, Caregivers, friends, neighbors for the care and compassion they showed our loved one in her final days.
