Anyone that knew her knows she loved plants and had a green thumb. She enjoyed listening to the blues and dancing the night away. Any given Sunday you could find her in the kitchen whipping up some good fixins’.  She was full of life and her energy was contagious. She always made you feel comfortable and at home.

She transitioned on January 4, 2022 at home peacefully with her family at her bedside. She will truly be missed and remembered by all that loved her.
