She had an incredible work ethic, having retired from the 82d Comptroller Squadron at Sheppard Air Force Base after 31 years of service. She loved our military service members and our country. She was a highly creative person who enjoyed sewing, arts and crafts and decorating. She was outspoken and direct, ensuring that everyone knew where they stood with her. She loved her family and friends fiercely, and she made a lasting impression on everyone who knew her. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend.

Danna Stone) and Mack Faulkner; her granddaughters, Taylor Bradley and Kennedy Faulkner; her grandsons, Brendan Stone, Zachary Stone, Nicholas Stone and Ryder Faulkner; her great-granddaughter, Alayna Stone and her great-grandsons, Dextin McNeese, Michael Stone and Ty Stone.
