As a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, she was very much loved and treasured. We will remember her for her strength of spirit, remarkable sense of humor, love of shopping, the joy and pleasure she got from the simplest things in life. We loved you, mom and grandma and thank you for all the wonderful memories you have left to each of us – your thoughtfulness, kindness, friendship and deep love of family.
Special thanks to her extended family at Bee Hive Home for all the love and care you have given to her and our family. God Bless You!
Her wishes were for no funeral, an internment will be at a later time in Helena at the Fort Harrison cemetery.
