She could whip up a meal at any time and always had a delicious dessert. She raised an abundant garden and prided herself on her beautiful yard and tidy home. She was an amazing seamstress and until her stroke in 2017, she spent much of her time making beautiful gifts for her friends and family.

Being a grandma was one of her greatest accomplishments. She was a grandma to six and a GiGi to fourteen.

She was her grandchildren’s biggest cheerleader. She rarely missed a ballgame, concert, rodeo, or 4-H fair, and she never forgot a birthday or anniversary.
