God needed another angel with the bluest of eyes…he shared her with us for 83 years of grace, patience and amazing virtue. She left her family with those lessons and never had a bad word about anything or anyone…including her sickness. Her family and her faith were her everything – her pride and joy and unending devotion. May we all carry her example of selflessness and courage with us.
