She leaves behind a wonderful legacy of a truly devoted Christian woman. Her spiritual faithfulness as a powerful prayer warrior was such an inspiration to the many lives that she touched. Her loving nature and caring spirit was her most prevalent trait. She devoted her life to lead her family, and to take care of each one. Her selflessness and caretaking were not a choice, but her way of life. She supported her family as a teller in the banking industry for many years, and then chose to be a loving guide to many little ones as a Paraprofessional at
She was always a strong fighter in her life. Through the loss of her true love 31 years ago, to the final days of her courageous battle with cancer, she proved that each day is a gift and that life is worth living. Her strength never seemed weak, and her faith was always HEAVEN STRONG.
