Such a sweet genuine women. For many years she was busy being a wife and mother, but always made time to share herself with you. Always smiling and happy. I had the opportunity to visit with her during her illness, but no complaints, no whoa is me, just smiles and blessings to share.

I’m privileged to have known her, and called her my friend. Rest In Peace dear sweet lady!

Love, Pearl Ann and family.
