She enjoyed serving, especially her family, whom she loved so dearly.

She gained joy from writing, nature, adventure, along with alone time with her Savior, meeting the needs of others, and loving and serving those around her unconditionally. She was project oriented, going to great lengths to create unique ways of expressing her love. Her source of strength came from the support of her loving husband and her intimate relationship with her Lord. It’s hard to imagine life without her and we are thankful for every minute we had with her. Her fingerprint left a mark on every person she knew. She gave more than she took and her legacy of love will affect us forever.
