She was a sister to her friends, she was brutally honest, and she opened her wallet for every child or adult who pulled on her heart strings. Throughout the years she worked at numerous salons where she made so many people beautiful for weddings, proms, or special occasions and then charged very little or only the price of the products.

She was an amazing cook, she loved Mickey Mouse, Beanie Babies Porcelain Dolls, she loved to play Bingo, Scratch Offs, and any games of Chance. But most of all she loved spending time with Family Friends. She will Truly be missed.
