Mother was proud of her public service as Alder Woman for 2 terms for the Town of Welsh. She loved her job as patient coordinator at the Welsh Nursing Home. Mother also worked for many years as Editor of The Welsh Citizen News Paper. She was always proud of her town and loved reporting exciting news about local families. Mother was an active member of Our Lady of Seven Dolors Catholic Church. She could always “carry a great tune” and sang in the OLSD Church Choir. She was a lector, catechism instructor, and director of the Catholic Youth Organization.

Mother’s full time job in life was raising her seven children. She had enough love in her heart to share with all of us.

She cherished her 15 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.

Mother taught us the joy of life. She always said, “Age was just a number.” She enjoyed our large family gatherings, especially during the holidays. Mother was never shy about greeting someone with a nice “hello” or “how are you?”. We will always remember her beautiful smile.
