Mom is also survived by 4 nieces and 8 nephews.  Mom had a special relationship her niece Brenda (Dennis).  Brenda and mom spent many evenings playing bingo and had lots of laughs.  Brenda never missed a days visit while mom was in the hospital.  Each grandchild holds their own special memories of their grandma, she was so good to them all.

Dear Mom,

There won’t be a day in my life that my heart won’t hurt.  Thank-you for loving me unconditionally and always being in my corner.
