We will love and miss Mom - for her love, her smiles, sitting on her porch watching the sunsets go down over Lake Conway, the family get-togethers, boating and skiing, and her love of fishing. She had boundless energy and learned to snow ski at 50 becoming quite the skier!
Mom has found her way to peace and love in the arms of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
