A Family Statement Read: “Mom was a dedicated Mother. A loving wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, sister, aunt and daughter. Picnics, family gatherings and spending time with her loved ones were the times she cherished the most. Her happiest times were those watching her children and grandchildren at all their endeavors or just simply spending quiet times at home with the love of her life, her husband Bud.
