How she loved her church family. Singing for her Lord was one of her greatest joys. She wrote songs and poetry expressing her love for her savior. Her greatest pleasure in life was giving to and serving others, encouraging and lifting them with her cards and letters. She had an unconditional love for her family, her darling husband of 65 years, Elmer; children, John and Joan; and granddaughter, Lisa, were her pride and joy. She lived her life for her wonderful Lord and her precious family she adored.
