Some of her favorite things to do were traveling, going to yard sales, having yard sales, visiting her children and grandchildren, cooking and visiting the Senior Citizen’s Center. She will be missed so very much by all her family and friends, but now she will be happy, free of pain and suffering and walk hand in hand with her Heavenly Father on the streets of gold in Heaven.
