Thank you, for all the kind sentiments! She had a presence larger than some knew and coast to coast it seems.
My Mother had a strong heart, that is how she put up with her back pain that traveled to her feet. She had a warm loving heart that is how she is remembered by us all now.
She cared about nieces and nephews, and really any child with recipes, card games, farkle, "Hugs and kind words" were as powerful as her 90 years!

Sorry for the loss of your mother. She was a very special lady. Heaven has received another shinning light for Jesus. Will always remember her and the love she had for everyone.

I will always remember Aunt Mary's laughter. Our family enjoyed her visits and mom and Aunt Mary would bake and cook some delicious foods for all of us to enjoy together.

It is wonderful to see your favorite flowers, yellow roses, next to such a lovely picture that so represents you. Here's to "the Farkle Queen", game player, lover of people, and loved by SO MANY: may you find great JOY on the other side. You are loved and missed. Jane and Lyle
