The most important thing to her was her family including the many, surrogate children who they raised along with their children.
She was always on the go, held many callings in the church, was always involved in community activities such as little league, 4H, rodeo’s and Scouts. She will always be remembered for being the favorite school bus driver. She loved all parts of that job, the kids the trips and colleagues. She will also be fondly remembered for her beautiful smile, welcoming personality, and lead foot. She loved and was loved by everyone that cast a shadow on her door frame, they always felt welcome and never left hungry.
She will be deeply missed by all.
