Mom will be greatly missed; we take comfort in knowing she is with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Mom lived by faith from the time she committed herself to the Lord.  She lived out this faith in daily life by working hard to provide for her family, being slow to anger, loving others unconditionally; she was generous - giving to others expecting nothing in return.  She was a Godly woman who made it her life to share Jesus and pray for others needs.  Everyone who knew her felt loved and accepted by her.
