Just returned from overseas today to receive this notification of "mom's" death. Sad with her passing...but my memories will primarily reflect on how inclusive Jim and Jeri and boys were to ensure she always felt wanted, loved, and in good hands. What a wonderful life she had and there is comfort in knowing that she now remains in very "good hands" with her loving God. My love to all.

Grandma will be missed by all who knew her. She had such a warm and friendly face. It matched her heart. I can't believe she always remembered my name! Jeri would say "I didn't even quiz her on it"! On her 90th Birthday I told her my name tag should say "Grandmas favorite" She flashed her smile and held my hands in hers. Still to this day I know I was one of her favorites!Thank You Jim&Jeri,Mark&Mary Pat for taking such great care of her! She's our angel now! Sending prayers your way.. Love, Grandmas favorite!!!
