Mom loved her family and her friends. She enjoyed visiting and company… any excuse to put the coffee pot on. She was a steady presence and remained devoted to her family, always ready to help when needed. A faithful member of Spragge Bible Church where she joyfully played the piano for many years. She will be greatly missed.
