She was a dear wife, mother, mémé, great grandmother, aunt, cousin, and friend to many. She will be greatly missed and remembered for her funny jokes, her giving nature and kind and loving heart. An angel above us of all, looking over her family now and forever.

Until we meet again and save me a front row seat.
