Her passion in life was her family, Lord and savior Jesus Christ, cooking and helping anyone she could. She put everyone before herself and would give anything she could, even if it was only a prayer. She found great joy in the family gatherings where she could feed everyone that something special, and always had enough for anyone else that stopped by. She was truly loved by all and will be deeply missed by her family, church, friends, and community.
