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.
