She dedicated her life to working with children in child care and as a tutor and touched the hearts of many. She was a patient, kind and gentle woman who had a tremendous capacity for love and compassion for others, especially those suffering or in need. She was fond of sending letters and cards to friends and family, and never missed an opportunity to send a thank you to note to those who showed her kindness.
She loved her children, grandchildren, friends, extended family and numerous pets over the years. She enjoyed books, movies, music, HGTV, and keeping up with the latest pop culture. She collected angels which she proudly displayed in her home. She was sentimental and created many photo albums which instilled the importance of memories. She was a fan of people and went out of her way to make sure they knew how important they were to her. She was a fighter, and repeatedly defied the odds despite the challenges and obstacles life threw at her.
Above all, she was a woman of unwavering faith in God and inspirational pride in her Catholic faith.
