From your family - "Throughout your life you enriched all of ours, your love, caring and giving from the heart leaves each of us better people. You were a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Family was always first and foremost in your life and that will never leave us. You touched us all and that is something we will miss, but never forget. So many people benefited from knowing you and feeling your love; family and friends. As time goes on the pain we feel now will slowly end and be replaced by all of your beautiful memories that will last forever, and when we see a ladybug, the first person we will think of is you. Although your life has ended now your love will live forever. Rest in Peace."
