She was a devoted wife, loving mother, beloved grandmother, faithful friend, and blessing to everyone who knew her.  She always had a song in her heart that she would willingly sing to anyone at any time.   Her bright and cheery personality brightened the day of everyone around her as her unquenchable faith and love for her savior Jesus Christ was a encouragement and testimony to all of us. 


Proverbs 31:28-31

28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
