Mom loved and cherished her five grandchildren, and 13 great grandchildren. Mom loved family get togethers whether they were small or large she always said “I love you the mostest” when leaving after a visit. She cherished any time spent with family including lunch at her favorite restaurant Garcia’s and trips to Wendover. As her health began to decline, she missed being able to attend many of these gatherings. Mom took as many trips as she could to visit her beloved Dodgers on the hallowed ground of Chavez Ravine but she also loved watching the Dodgers and the Utah Jazz games on television.
