She was a member of Crossroads Church in Mansfield. She enjoyed antiques, gardening, biking, being outside and spending time with her grandchildren.

 Every day was enveloped by her eccentric personality, honest sense of humor, and headstrong will. Hers was a spirit of dedication and devotion to family above all else.

Life was made a great deal more complete by her choices and her presence.
