She was a patient sufferer and talked to us about going home, and a few nights before her death she sand, “I am Going Home To Die No More,” and rejoiced because she would soon to be with her Savior. We miss her so much but we know she is happy where she has gone, and that she is waiting for us there.

She is survived by a husband, five sons and three daughters.
