She was always ready, with a smile, to spend time with family and friends. Always known for her kindness and easy going spirit. Her children and friends knew she was ready to go, whether it was on a vacation, camping, or shopping. Fishing was always a fun time, as she admired her big fish as it flew from one side of the boat and back into the water on the other side. MallieWayne says “Mom was a loving mom who always made time to take us swimming, or on an adventure. Every birthday was special, our special day, with a party. To my mom who always kept us safe as little ones and was always glad to see us no matter how many friends we brought home with us. To a mom I loved with all a son could, always a smile on her face and a song in her heart I love you Mom”.
