She was selfless and always put the needs of others before her own. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She enjoyed spending time with her family. We always loved going to the beach and having good times together. We will miss her smile, laughter, love, thoughtfulness, encouragement, and wisdom. She was a good woman who will continue to be loved and dearly missed.
