Our mother was the most kind, caring, compassionate, and loving person we were blessed to have in our lives. Her family was the center of her life. She loved to travel with her husband on camping trips across the US, even backpacking in her 50’s. She loved to play card games, go out to eat, cook new recipes and had a legendary appetite, as did her father. She will be missed tremendously.
