Her favorite saying was “A sense of humor will help you get through almost anything”. She will be remembered for her quick wit and incredible inner strength and resilience. He family and friends will miss her thoughtful, warm and friendly ways. Her best pastimes were being with Carl, at home and traveling, reading and working jigsaw puzzles.
