Our Loss


Today, December 31, my mother passed away.


 She celebrated her 81st birthday this past summer and her and dad's 61st Wedding Anniversary this past October. Devoted wife, mother of eight, and wonderful mother-in-law. Grandmother of 19 grandchildren and their spouses, and great-grandmother of 17. Loving, creative, and intelligent, she had a very strong faith. She loved family weddings, birthdays and celebrations and was extremely proud of her large family. We love you Mom.

  7. Hugs to you Elizabeth during this very sad time. Even with a life lived fully and completely, it's still always, very, very hard to say good bye. That it's only for a time until you're reunited is sweet solace and something to hang on to. I'll be thinking of you and your family.
