She was a part of the Berlin Baptist Church, not only has a member, but as family with cherished friendships. Her favorite things in life were to be with family. She always put together the most fabulous family gatherings for every event, Christmas, Thanksgiving, really every holiday and everyone’s Birthday. She never missed a, game, meet, concert, or special event her children and grandchildren were part of. She really enjoyed getting away to their place up at Silver Lake to relax and read a book or to spend time with family and friends. It was truly one of her happy places. She was full of warmth, wisdom, kindness, and love that she would share with anyone who needed it. She was a second Mom to many. She gave great hugs and had a smile that made you think everything was going to be okay. She will truly be missed by everyone who was lucky enough to have known her. There will be a hole in our hearts and lives until we see and embrace her again.
