She was a woman of deep and abiding faith. Her life was bounded by family, community and her church. She was a lifelong parishioner of St. Paul the Apostle Coniston, a member of the choir and the Catholic Woman's League for 70 years.
She loved family, parties and fun. She played the piano and sang and made a happy home for her husband and children as well as her large extended family. She embodied the proverb: “A home does not rest upon the ground but on a woman.” She will be greatly missed.
