She loved being ‘nana’ or ‘gunga’ and the grandchildren were the light of her life. She also loved traveling and being a part of all her kids’ activities from sports to sprint car racing and was instrumental in establishing softball in Monticello with works involving Twin Lakes Softball.
She led by example. There was never a job too large or too small that she would not tackle. Mom was a strong, determined and fiercely independent woman and dedicated her life and time to her children and grandchildren. We will miss her every day.
