Mom was a devoted, loyal wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and aunt to many nephews and nieces.

Mom dedicated her life to be the best homemaker and seamstress.

Mom loved to sew and created many of our cute dresses as we were growing up, plus numerous party dresses for others.

Mom was a humble person of Catholic faith and lived life serving her family and church, always praying and made sure her daughters completed their religious sacraments.

Mom was a great listener, very wise with positive words of advice and strong support.

Mom was a kind and gentle person who gave 100% true love and gracious smiles to everyone.

Our mother was the glue that held our family together and we will miss her forever and ever.
