She was very active in her children growing up and their activities, sports and education. As a family, they would go fishing, crabbing and camping. She would do anything and everything to help her children and was their biggest support. Her three grandchildren brought her so much joy. She had a beautiful backyard where she loved to watch the grandkids play. Holidays were important to her, as well as the many annual traditions that will continue in her honor. She was an animal lover and the family pets shared a special place in her heart. She worked for the school district for 20 years. Being a secretary at Cascade Middle School was more than just a job, it was a huge part of her life. She thought of her coworkers as family and was involved and helped in any way she could. She was the kindest, thoughtful, caring, and most genuine women. She would do anything to help anyone. She was selfless, always putting others before herself. She was loved beyond measure and will be greatly missed.
