She was a very loving and beautiful person and was very devoted to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren who she loved very much. She always had a hug and would tell you she loved you. She never met a stranger. She had a big heart and donated to those in need and less fortunate. She lived life to the fullest and enjoyed her long walks, dancing whenever she heard music and loved to play the piano, but most of all loved to see her loved ones coming with open arms. She was a person of great faith in the Lord.
