She was a very dedicated mother and an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She had many hobbies over the years that she took very seriously including, calligraphy, cake decorating, toll painting and was a member of the Sweet Adelines for many years. She and our father were Gypsies at heart and they took us all with them in their many travels all across the country and back many times. We had some wonderful family trips, including yearly trips with her mom and dad, sister, brother and all their kids. We will all really miss her, but are happy that her journey here is over and she has returned to the loving arms of her husband, she missed his hugs.
