She loved her job and her co-workers, but especially enjoyed all her “kids” at the schools over the 20 plus years she was there. Her family and caring for them was her life. She dearly loved spending time with all of them. She was loved by many and will be missed. The family would like to thank her immediate neighbors for their support and passion. Due to Coronavirus pandemic, a celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
